Background and objectives:  High concentration of preservatives in food may result in gastrointestinal disturbances whereby some patients suffering from asthma, rhinitis, or urticaria. The aim of this study is the introduction and optimization a new method for simultaneous determination of four preservatives (SB, PS, MP, PP) in foodstuff by high performance liquid chromatography. Materials and methods: Important factors in extraction, separation and determination process were optimized using the one variable at a time method.  Figures of merit of the proposed method were evaluated. The amount of SB, PS, MP, PP in some food samples were determined using...
