So, what is lactat de potasiu?

Lactat de potasiu, also known as potassium lactate, is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a preservative, flavoring agent, and pH regulator in a variety of food products. This white crystalline powder is produced by neutralizing lactic acid with potassium hydroxide, and it has a slightly salty taste and a mild odor. It is often used in processed meats, poultry, and seafood products to extend their shelf life and improve their texture, as well as in baked goods, dairy products, and beverages to enhance their flavor and freshness. Additionally, lactat de potasiu is a safe and effective alternative to sodium lactate, which can contribute to high blood pressure and other health problems.
