So, what is fosfato monossódico?

Fosfato monossódico, also known as monosodium phosphate, is a chemical compound commonly used as a food additive to enhance flavor, improve texture, and extend shelf life. It is a white, odorless powder that is highly soluble in water and has a slightly tart taste. Fosfato monossódico is often used in processed foods such as baked goods, cheese, and canned meats to prevent spoilage and maintain freshness. It is also used in some soft drinks as a buffering agent to control pH levels. While generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive consumption of fosfato monossódico can lead to health issues such as nausea, diarrhea, and dehydration.
