So, what is citratos de potasio?

Citratos de potasio, or potassium citrates, are a type of salt commonly used as a food additive to regulate acidity and enhance flavor. They are made by combining citric acid with potassium carbonate or potassium hydroxide. Potassium citrates are often found in processed foods such as soft drinks, jams, and meat products. In addition to their flavor-enhancing properties, they also have potential health benefits, including regulating blood pressure and reducing the risk of kidney stones. However, excessive consumption can lead to negative side effects such as stomach upset and diarrhea.
