So, what is hydroxydes de sodium?

Hydroxydes de sodium is the French term for sodium hydroxides, a highly caustic and reactive chemical compound. Also known as caustic soda or lye, sodium hydroxides are widely used in the food industry as a pH regulator, thickener, and leavening agent. However, due to its corrosive nature, it must be handled with extreme caution. Sodium hydroxides are commonly used in the production of various food products such as chocolate, beer, and baked goods. It is important to note that excessive consumption of sodium hydroxides can have severe health consequences, including tissue damage and organ failure.
