Potassium Sorbate

Potassium Sorbate is used in cheese, yogurt and dips using dairy products, margarines, mayonnaise and sour cream. These products are processed using potassium sorbate to extend their shelf life by inhibiting the growth of certain moulds, yeast and bacteria.


Potassium Sorbate is used as a preservative in several foods since its anti-microbial properties stop the growth of harmful bacteria and moulds. It is used in cheese, baked goods, syrups and jams. It is also used as a preservative for dehydrated foods like jerky and dried fruit, as it does not leave an aftertaste.
The use of potassium sorbate increases the shelf life of foods, so many dietary supplements also include it. It is commonly used in wine production because it stops the yeast from continuing to ferment in the bottles.
