Our Potassium Sorbate is a premium quality, refined crystalline salt and is the potassium salt of Sorbic Acid. Its main function is to inhibit the growth of mould, yeast and microbes, which in turn increases the shelf life of food products. It can be used in many foods such as cheese, soft/fruit drinks, wine, dried meat, dried fruits, yogurt, apple cider, wine and baked goods. Potassium Sorbate is not suitable for bread making or baked products which use yeast. In wine Potassium Sorbate produces Sorbic Acid which stops any surviving yeast from multiplying once the final racking of the wine is completed. It can also be used to clarify and prevent refermentation in apple cider and sweetened and sparkling wine. Suitable for Vegans, Vegetarians, Ova-Lacto Vegetarians, Non-GMO, Gluten free, Kosher Friendly, Halal Friendly.
