Application

Potassium Sorbate can restrain effectively the activity of mould, yeast and aerophile bacteria. Restrain growth and reproduction of the pernicious micro oraganism as pseudomonas, staphylococcus salmonella action to restrain growth is more powerful than killing. Meanwhile, it can not  restrain useful microoraganim growth as Anaerobicspore-bearing bacilli, acidophil therefore to lengthen food store period and remain food original flavor. The preservative efficiency of potassium sorbate is 5-10 times than sodium benzoate.
