So, what is citrates de sodium?

Sodium citrate is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a preservative, acidity regulator, and emulsifier. It is a white, odorless, and crystalline powder that is highly soluble in water. Sodium citrate is derived from citric acid, which is naturally found in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes. It has a tangy and slightly salty taste, which makes it a popular ingredient in various processed foods, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. Sodium citrate is also used in the food industry to enhance the flavor of cheese, as it helps to improve the texture and meltability of cheese products. It is generally considered safe for consumption in small amounts, although excessive consumption may lead to side effects such as digestive discomfort.
