Potassium Acetate, E261, CAS no.127-08-2, a potassium salt of acetic acid, white crystal powder. Potassium Acetate manufacturing process via chemical synthesis, potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate and acetic acid as raw materials. Potassium Acetate is used as a food preservative and acidity regulator to help prevent bacterial growth. It is better than Sodium Acetate to avoid Sodium. Also used as a deicer instead of chloride salts such as calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. It offers the advantage of being less aggressive on soils and much less corrosive. As a professional Potassium Acetate supplier, we supply Potassium Acetate food and pharmaceutical grade.
