Potassium Sorbate occurs as white to off white crystals, crystalline powder, or pellets. It decomposes at about 270°C.
Potassium sorbate is the potassium salt of sorbic acid, it is very soluble in water (58.2% at 20 °C). It is primarily used as a food preservative ( E number202). Potassium sorbate is effective in a variety of applications including food, wine, and personal-careproducts. While sorbic acid occurs naturally in some berries, virtually all of the world's production of sorbicacid, from which potassium sorbate is derived, is manufactured synthetically.
Its primary use is as a food preservative. Potassium sorbate is effective in a variety of applications including food, wine, and personal care products.
