So, what is fosfato trissodico?

Fosfato trissodico, also known as trisodium phosphate, is a white crystalline powder commonly used in the food industry as an emulsifier, nutrient supplement, and pH adjuster. It is derived from phosphoric acid and sodium hydroxide and has a slightly alkaline taste. Fosfato trissodico is often added to processed cheeses, canned meats, and baked goods as it helps improve texture, increase water retention, and prevent spoilage. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that high levels of consumption may lead to adverse health effects, such as kidney damage and cardiovascular disease.
