So, what is sorbic acid?

Sorbic acid is a natural and highly effective food preservative commonly used to extend the shelf life of various food products. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless crystalline powder that is soluble in water and alcohol. Derived from the berries of the rowan tree, sorbic acid is a safe and non-toxic alternative to synthetic preservatives. It is commonly used in processed foods, baked goods, and dairy products, as well as in the production of wine and cheese. Sorbic acid works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold, and yeast, thereby preventing spoilage and ensuring that food products remain fresh for longer periods of time.
