So, what is citrato trissodico?

Citrato trissodico, also known as trisodium citrate, is a white crystalline powder commonly used as a food additive and preservative. It has a sour, slightly salty taste and is soluble in water. Citrato trissodico is often added to processed foods and beverages as a flavor enhancer, acidity regulator, and emulsifier. It is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as a buffering agent and chelating agent. Citrato trissodico has been found to have potential health benefits, such as reducing the risk of kidney stones and improving the absorption of certain minerals. However, excessive consumption can lead to digestive issues and electrolyte imbalances.
