So, what is sorbate?

Sorbate is a food preservative that is widely used in the food industry to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi and yeasts. Also known as sorbic acid, it's a white crystalline powder that has a slightly acidic taste and is soluble in water. It's commonly found in processed foods such as cheese, wine, baked goods and soft drinks, as well as personal care products. Sorbate works by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms that can spoil food, so it helps to maintain the freshness and quality of products for longer periods of time. Nevertheless, it's important to use sorbate in moderation, as high levels may cause adverse reactions in some individuals.
