So, what is potassium sorbate as?

Potassium sorbate is a chemical compound that is commonly used as a food preservative due to its ability to inhibit the growth of molds, yeasts, and some bacteria. It is a salt that is derived from sorbic acid, which is naturally found in some berries. Potassium sorbate is highly soluble in water, making it easy to use in a variety of food products such as cheese, baked goods, and beverages. This food ingredient is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies such as the FDA, and is a popular choice for extending the shelf life of perishable foods.
