So, what is sodium sorbate?

Sodium sorbate is a food preservative that is widely used in the food industry to extend the shelf life of products. It is a sodium salt of sorbic acid, which occurs naturally in some berries and fruits. Sodium sorbate is effective against mold, yeast, and bacteria, making it a popular choice for preserving food items such as cheese, meat, and baked goods. It is generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies, and it is commonly used in low concentrations, making it an efficient and cost-effective option for food manufacturers. Despite its widespread use, some studies suggest that high doses of sodium sorbate may have negative health effects, so it is important to use it in moderation.
