The proportion of undissociated acid can be calculated by the Henderson–Hasselbalch equation (Lund & Eklund, 2000) pH = pK a + log10 [A− ]/[HA] where [HA] is the concentration of undissociated acid and [A− ] is the concentration of dissociated acid (or anion concentration). When [A− ] = [HA], pH = pKa and the acid is 50% dissociated, that is, 50% of the added compound is effective as a preservative. The proportion of fat and water in the food further affects the antimicrobial activity of organic acids.

Considerably higher doses are required to inactivate bacterial spores compared to vegetative cells. High doses are required to inactivate small targets such as viruses or enzymes, whereas low doses will inactivate large targets such as parasitic worms. Vegetative microbes are inactivated by an intermediate irradiation dose. Regulatory approvals have been granted for use of ionizing irradiation with a variety of fruits and vegetables, and meat and poultry products. H.
