So, what is potassium propionate?

Potassium propionate is a food preservative that is commonly used to prevent the spoilage of baked goods, dairy products, and meats. It is a white crystalline powder that is highly soluble in water and has a slightly salty taste. Potassium propionate works by inhibiting the growth of mold and other harmful microorganisms that can cause food to spoil. It is considered safe for human consumption and is often used as a replacement for other chemical preservatives that are less desirable. In addition to its preservative properties, potassium propionate may also have some potential health benefits, including helping to regulate blood pressure and preventing the formation of kidney stones.
