Application area:Food, Meat, Cosmetics, Other industries.
Typical applications:Potassium Lactate is good anti-microbial property and can catch large amount of free water in food to lower the water activity. It suppresses the growth of microorganism, extend the shelf life and keep and enhance the flavor. Used as a water retention agent in Food and Cosmetics industries.
Potassium lactate is commonly used in meat and poultry products to extend shelf life and increase food safety as it has a broad antimicrobial action and is effective at inhibiting most spoilage and pathogenic bacteria. It enhances the color, juiciness, flavor and tenderness of pork. It also slows the process of flavor deterioration.
Potassium lactate is added to foods as a flavor agent and enhancer. It is also a humectant, meaning that it helps foods retain water and keeps them moist longer. Potassium lactate also helps maintain the acid levels in food. It make your food look and taste better and protect you from foodborne illness.
