Potassium Sorbate in brine?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 11, 2013 at 10:06 PM

Someone bought me bocconcini and the ingredients are "pasteurized milk, microbial enzyme, bacterial culture. Packaged in water with potassium sorbate" I know pasteurized milk and milk is bad yadda yadda, but can I make it somewhat better by pouring out the water and washing it? Or do you think potassium sorbate would penetrate the cheese? Any knowledge on this chemical?

I can believe it's like soap cause when I rinsed it, it foamed!

It's a conjugated polyene, so it looks like it should be antioxidant-like, wouldn't have guessed it's simply an anti-microbial.

It's basically a soap right? It looks like sorbate is a fatty acid.

When it doubt, look it up on Wikipedia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_sorbate

Preservative. Relatively non-toxic. Also found in natural foods.

I wouldn't sweat it.
