As an important preservative, Potassium Sorbate has been extensively used in
food, drink, vegetables, soy sauce, tobacco, drugs, cosmetics, agricultural
products, forage and other domain.
As acidic preservative, Potassium Sorbate is also used well in neutral food (ph6.0-6.5). The preservative efficiency of sodium benzoate will decrease clearly and have a bad taste while ph>4, therefore it has a better and wider application than sodium benzoate.
