So, what is hydroxydes de potassium?

Hydroxydes de potassium is a French term that translates to "potassium hydroxides" in English. It is an inorganic compound that is commonly used in the food industry as a pH regulator and a stabilizer. This ingredient is highly alkaline and can react with acids to form water and salts. It is also known for its ability to absorb moisture and is often used in the production of chocolates and baked goods to prevent them from becoming stale. Despite its usefulness in food production, it is important to handle this ingredient with care as it can be highly corrosive and can cause severe skin and eye irritation.
