So, what is sodium triphosphates?

Sodium triphosphates are a common food ingredient that are widely used in the food industry as a food additive. They are composed of three molecules of phosphate, bound together with a sodium ion, and are often referred to as STP. This ingredient is used as a sequestrant, which means that it helps to stabilize and maintain the quality of various food products by preventing the discoloration, oxidation, and texture changes that can occur during storage. Sodium triphosphates are commonly found in processed meats, seafood, and dairy products, and are considered safe for consumption by regulatory authorities around the world.
