So, what is wodorotlenek potasu?

Wodorotlenek potasu, also known as potassium hydroxide, is a white, odorless compound with the chemical formula KOH. It is commonly used in food processing as an ingredient in softening agents for vegetables, such as olives and potatoes, and as a pH adjuster in chocolate and cocoa processing. Potassium hydroxide is also utilized in the manufacture of soaps, detergents, and other cleaning products due to its ability to break down fats and oils. While it is safe to consume in small amounts, handling this highly alkaline substance requires caution, as it can cause severe burns and damage to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
