So, what is azotan potasu?

Azotan potasu, also known as potassium nitrate, is a crystalline salt commonly used as a food preservative and a component of fertilizer. It has a chemical formula of KNO3 and is composed of potassium, nitrogen, and oxygen atoms. In food, it helps prevent bacterial growth, which can prolong the shelf life of processed meats and cheeses. However, it is also used in some countries to cure meats, as it can be broken down into nitrite, which gives cured meats their distinctive pink color and flavor. Despite its uses, excessive consumption of azotan potasu can be harmful to human health, so it is important to use it in moderation.
