Are resins or preservatives used? Well, sometimes but not in the sense of preservation.

What is resin?

Resin, rosin is any of a class of solid or semisolid viscous substances obtained either as exudations from certain plants or prepared by polymerization of simple molecules

Gum Arabic is a highly prized resin, harvested from two species of Acacia trees,
specifically Acacia seyel and Acacia senegal.

Dragon’s blood is (a bright red) resin that is obtained from different species of a number of distinct plant genera: Croton, Dracaena, Daemonorops, Calamus rotang and Pterocarpus.

Frankincense and myrrh are both resins which are dried tree sap that come from trees of the genus Boswellia (frankincense) and Commiphora (myrhh), which are common to Somalia.

What is a Preservative?
A preservative is a natural or synthetic chemical that is added to products such as foods, pharmaceuticals, paints, biological samples, wood, etc. to prevent decomposition by microbial growth or by undesirable chemical changes.

Natural substances such as salt, sugar, vinegar, and diatomaceous earth are also used as traditional preservatives. Certain processes such as freezing, pickling, smoking and salting can also be used to preserve food. Another group of preservatives targets enzymes in fruits and vegetables that continue to metabolize after they are cut. For instance, citric and ascorbic acids from lemon or other citrus juice can inhibit the action of the enzyme phenolase which turns surfaces of cut apples and potatoes brown. Caution must be taken, however, since FDA standards do not currently require fruit and vegetable product labels to accurately reflect the type of preservative used in the products.
