Potassium Sorbate (E202)

I've taken 10 years to identify that this is a trigger for my migraines, and severe vomiting.

I am interested in anyone else's experience with identifying this.

  1. Hi @Jeckyl21,

    Thank you for sharing that with us. For some of us additives can do a number on our migraine attacks. Good that you figured this out! It's not uncommon to have more than one trigger. I have a number of them that include dehydration, skipping meals, irregular sleeping patterns and sometimes changes in the barometric pressure. Avoiding the ones we can may help manage migraine!

    I'm going to give you a link to a forum discussion where others have shared similar experiences; https://migraine.com/topic/potassium-sorbate-preservative/.

    Have you found potassium sorbate difficult to eliminate?

    Wishing you a low pain day,
