Potassiun Sorbate Food and Wine Preservative 


Potassium sorbate is used as a bacteriostat (inhibits molds and yeasts in many foods) in such foods as cheese, wine, yogurt, dried meats, apple cider and baked goods. It is also used in dried fruit products and herbal dietary supplements. Its main purpose is to prevent mold and microbes and increase shelf life, which is normally achieved using small amounts.

Sorbic Acid occurs naturally in the rowanberries and the berries of the mountain ash in the form of parasorbic acid. This was discovered in 1895 and later chemically synthesized in 1900. The ANTIMYCOTIC and ANTIBACTERIAL actions were verified in 1945 and since then POTASSIUM SORBATE has been recommended as an effective preservative for the protection of food products.

In Canada, US, Japan and Europe and almost all of the other countries of the world POTASSIUM SORBATE is a legally permitted preservative because of its outstanding physiological properties.

Countless tons of foodstuffs are saved each year from perishing because of the use of Potassium Sorbate as a preservative method.

The application of Potassium Sorbate becomes continually more important because of its effectiveness in combating microorganisms that attack foodstuffs.

Because Potassium Sorbate metabolizes like a food fatty acid, it is harmless to the human organism. If it is used in the correct amounts Potassium Sorbate do not affect the taste or smell of foodstuffs
