So, what is sodium malate?

Sodium malate is a food ingredient that is commonly used as an acidity regulator, flavor enhancer, and preservative. It is a sodium salt of malic acid, a natural acid found in many fruits, such as apples and grapes. Sodium malate has a slightly tart taste and is often used in the production of baked goods, beverages, and processed foods to add a sour or tangy flavor. It also has a unique ability to improve the texture of foods, making them softer and more tender. Sodium malate is a safe and effective ingredient that is approved for use by food regulatory agencies worldwide.
