Preservative.

Formic acid occurs naturally in stinging nettles, and in the stings and bites of many insects, notably bees and ants. Calcium formate is the calcium salt of formic acid.

Commercially it is chemically produced. It acts as a preservative to prevent spoilage of food by inhibiting or preventing the growth of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms and as an anti-bacterial - a name given to anything that will destroy bacteria or suppress bacterial growth or their ability to reproduce. Used in sauces, gravies, dressings, drinks (carbonated, non-carbonated, fruit and vegetable juices), and bakery items.

Added to chicken feed to inhibit bacterial growth in the stomach.
