Potassium sorbate CasNo.: 24634-61-5 is a white crystalline powder. It is a potassium salt of sorbic acid.It was originally discovered in the 1850’s, and was derived from the Mountain Ash Tree. Today, potassium sorbate is synthetically created. it is a good food preservatives, fully degradable, similar to fatty acids found naturally in foods. It is used to slow the growth of molds and yeasts in foods. It is commonly found in margarine, wines, cheeses, yogurts, soft drinks, and baked goods. Potassium sorbate has been used has a food preservative for many years. There have been extensive long-term tests that have confirmed its safety and it is on the Center for Science in the Public Interest list of safe additives.


At the moment,Potassium sorbate CasNo.: 24634-61-5 has been used extensively in food, drink,vegetables in soy, tabacco, drugs, cosmetics, agricultural products, forage and other domain. Its applicaion should be wide and wide in the world. As acidic preservative, Sorbic Acid is also used well in neutral food(ph6.0-6.5). The preservative efficiency of sodium benzoate will decrease clearly and have a bed taste while ph>4.
