So, what is polifosfat de sodiu?

Polifosfat de sodiu, also known as sodium polyphosphate, is a versatile food ingredient that is widely used as an emulsifier, thickener, and stabilizer. It is a white, odorless powder that is soluble in water and has a neutral taste. Sodium polyphosphate is often added to processed meat products such as sausages, ham, and bacon to improve their texture, increase their water retention, and extend their shelf life. It is also used in dairy products, baked goods, and beverages to enhance their viscosity and stability. While sodium polyphosphate is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive intake may lead to health concerns.
