So, what is triphosphates?

Triphosphates are a type of food additive commonly used in the food industry as a preservative and to enhance texture and moisture retention in processed foods. They are a group of three phosphate molecules bonded together, and their chemical properties make them effective in preventing spoilage and bacterial growth. Triphosphates are often added to processed meats, seafood, and some dairy products. Despite their benefits, some studies have raised concerns about their potential health effects, particularly in large quantities. As with all food additives, it's essential to consume triphosphates in moderation and be mindful of their presence in processed foods.
