So, what is σορβικό οξύ?

Sorbic acid, also known as σορβικό οξύ in Greek, is a food preservative commonly used in the food industry to extend the shelf life of various food products. It is a white, crystalline powder with a slightly bitter taste and is easily soluble in water. Sorbic acid is considered safe for consumption in small quantities, as it has antimicrobial properties that help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi in food. It is commonly used in baked goods, dairy products, meats, and beverages to maintain freshness and prevent spoilage. Sorbic acid is a versatile ingredient that allows food manufacturers to produce safe and high-quality products that remain fresh and appealing for longer periods.
