Buffered aqueous solutions of carboxylic acids and metal salts of the carboxylic acids are described. They contain 40-80% of compounds of carboxylic acids and carboxylic acid metal salts, such as sodium diacetate, sodium dipropionate, sodium dibutyrate or sodium dibenzoate. They have reduced corrosive nature to metals and alloys used to contain and transport the solutions. The solutions may be used as mould inhibitors in bread and cakes, etc.
