So, what is phosphate trisodique?

Phosphate trisodique is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used in the food industry as a food additive and emulsifying agent. Also known as trisodium phosphate or TSP, it has a pH of 12 and is highly soluble in water, making it an effective cleaning agent as well. This ingredient is often used to enhance the texture and flavor of processed foods, such as dairy products and meat products. While it is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive consumption of phosphate trisodique has been linked to negative health effects, such as kidney damage and mineral imbalances.
