Potassium sorbate is an internationally recognized low toxicity and efficient acidic preservative, with the same anti-corrosion effect as sorbic acid. Potassium sorbate is widely used in industries such as food, beverages, soy sauce, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and agricultural products.
Potassium sorbate is used as a food preservative, fruit and vegetable preservative, cosmetic preservative, feed preservative, and inhibitor of mold and yeast.
Potassium sorbate is also used in wine production because it prevents yeast from continuing to ferment in the bottle. Potassium sorbate, as an acidity regulator, can regulate the pH value of food and beverages to maintain a stable acidity.
In industry, potassium sorbate can also be used as a catalyst, dye, and resin production.
