    Product Applications

    Sorbic Acid is widely used in the baking industry as a preservative in cakes, pies, pie fillings, fruitcakes, and icings.

    Straight sorbic acid cannot be used in yeast-raised products because of its negative effects on yeast fermentation. To overcome this, Watson has microencapsulated the sorbic

    acid in a matrix of hydrogenated soybean oil. This protective coating only releases the sorbic acid during the baking process.

    Watson’s Sorbic Acid 50% does not affect the flavor or odor of the finished baked goods.
