Potassium Sorbate

Potassium Sorbate is a water-soluble food preservative that is synthetically derived from sorbic acid and potassium hydroxide. Potassium Sorbate has been used more frequently in the food industry in the past 50 years due to its ability to extend the shelf-life of foods without altering the qualities of the food, such as taste, smell, or appearance. Potassium Sorbate can be found today in baked goods, dried meats, dried fruit, juices, and even cosmetic products due to its preservative properties. - Reliable Food Preservative
