What is Potassium Bitartrate?

Potassium bitartrate is a potassium salt derived from tartaric acid. In the production of sugar syrups, potassium bitartrate is added to prevent crystallization and the formation of sugar crystals.

Potassium bitartrate serves as an acidulant, contributing a slightly tart flavor. It is also used as a leavening agent in baking applications.
