Available grades and packaging


The approved dosage level of Provian K depends on local legislation, meat type and shelf life requirements. In the United States, potassium acetate is approved as a flavoring agent and potassium diacetate as an antimicrobial in various meat and poultry products (FSIS 7120.1). In the EU, potassium acetate and potassium diacetate are both approved for meat applications under one E number (E 261).


Provian K is stable for 2 years from date of production. Physical stability and appearance may change before the end of shelf-life if not stored single-stacked in well closed original packaging, dry and at room temperature. The product is hygroscopic and will absorb water from the air quickly. Care must be taken that opened bags are closed well to prevent physical deterioration of the product.
