Potassium lactate, C3H5O3K, is the potassium salt of lactic acid, obtained by neutralisation of the acid of natural origin with a high purity potassium source.
Potassium lactate is used in food as a sodium free pathogen control agent and humectant. As an alternative to sodium lactate, it addresses the concerns of health organisations and consumers about reducing sodium intake (sodium in processed foods).
