So, what is phosphates de sodium?

Sodium phosphates are a class of food additives commonly used as emulsifiers, stabilizers, and acidity regulators in the food industry. They are a combination of different types of sodium salts derived from phosphoric acid. Sodium phosphates can improve the texture, appearance, and shelf life of processed foods such as processed meats, cheese, and canned foods. They also enhance the water-holding capacity of meat products, which improves their juiciness and tenderness. However, excessive consumption of sodium phosphates may lead to health issues such as kidney damage, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis, so it's essential to consume them in moderation.
