Potassium sorbate

Сорбат калия

Potassium sorbate (potassium salt of sorbic acid) is a preservative that actively suppresses yeast, mold fungi and some types of bacteria, as well as the effect of enzymes. This increases the shelf life of the products. Potassium sorbate does not have a microbicidal effect. It only slows down the development of microorganisms.

Potassium sorbate is highly water-soluble.

If the recommended dosage is observed, potassium sorbate does not affect the taste of canned products. It withstands heat treatment.


White crystalline powder or granules, almost odorless, neutral taste.
