Potassium Sorbate Structure

The potassium salt of sorbic acid has the chemical formula CH3CH=CHCH=CHCO2K. It is a white salt with a high water solubility (58.2% at 20 °C). Its primary application is as a food preservative (E number 202). [4] Potassium sorbate has several uses, including food, wine, and personal care items. While sorbic acid occurs naturally in rowan berries, almost all of the world's supply of sorbic acid, from which potassium sorbate is generated, is synthesised.

Industries where Potassium Sorbate is used

Manufacturers and researchers in the industrial sector keep coming up with new ideas for using Potassium Sorbate. At present, this organic compound is used as:
  • In many foods, such as cheese, wine, yogurt, dried meats, apple cider, dehydrated fruits, soft drinks and fruit drinks, and baked goods, potassium sorbate is used to inhibit moulds and yeasts.
  • It is used to make items like hotcake syrup and milkshakes served at fast-food restaurants like McDonald's.
  • It is often included as a component in many dried fruit products. Furthermore, herbal dietary supplement products typically contain potassium sorbate, which prevents mould and microbes and extends shelf life.
  • While the molecule is often found in food, there are several more applications for potassium sorbate. Many cosmetic products are also susceptible to mould development, and preservatives are used to extend the life of skin and haircare products. Potassium sorbate is almost certainly included in your shampoo, hair spray, or skin lotion.
