* The only preservative used in processing dried plums is potassium sorbate (the potassium salt of sorbic acid), which is used to protect against mold and yeast spoilage. Sorbic acid is the safest preservative known to food science, since it is a food itself found in nature in the European sorb apple and in rowanberries. It is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, completely metabolized by the human body. Hence the human body does not have to detoxify the material prior to elimination, a feature unique to sorbic acid. Nothing else is added to dried plums except pure water during processing.
