So, what is potasyum sorbat?

Potassium sorbate is a food preservative that is commonly used in the food industry to extend the shelf life of a variety of foods, including baked goods, dairy products, meats, and beverages. It is a salt that is formed by combining sorbic acid with potassium hydroxide, and it works by inhibiting the growth of mold, yeast, and bacteria in food products. Potassium sorbate is considered safe for human consumption, and it is often used in organic and natural food products as an alternative to synthetic preservatives. It has a neutral taste and odor, making it an ideal ingredient for food preservation without altering the flavor of the food.
