Japan: describe “potassium sorbate”.
Efficient on acidic foods. Potassium salts that are conveniently soluble in water are normally used. Since it is easy to vaporize with water vapor during heating, it should be added after heating is finished. Guidelines for use vary by item. Minced fish items and meat items can be added throughout active ingredients and have to be completely blended.

Sorbic Acid Natural Production Method

Sorbic Acid Natural can be developed by the sorbic aldehyde oxidation method, the condensation method of acetone and crotonaldehyde, and the condensation technique of malonic acid and crotonaldehyde. Nonetheless, it is currently produced by the ketene method in your home and abroad. In addition, the butadiene program has excellent growth prospective clients because of its decreased resources cost.
Butadiene path
Butadiene and acetic acid are integrated under pressure at 140 ° C under the catalysis of manganese acetate to obtain γ-ethylene-γ-butyrolactone, which can be hydrolyzed under acidic problems at 100 ° C to acquire sorbic acid. The acetic acid vapor containing the alkyl phosphate chauffeur remains in the splitting tube over 700 ° C for 0.3 s, and the produced gas mix makes use of ammonia gas to transform the driver right into ammonium phosphate and deactivate it. Progressively awesome to -10 ~ 30 ° C to remove water, acetic acid, acetic anhydride, and so on; ketene gas is absorbed by crotonaldehyde and generates polyhexene under the catalysis of boron fluoride (or zinc chloride, cobalt chloride, and so on) -4,5-β-lactone (described as polyester); the polyester is hydrolyzed under acidic issues, and the unrefined sorbic acid is quickened after cooling, and afterwards recrystallized with 3 to 4 times the amount of 60% ethanol to get Sorbic Acid Natural.
