So, what is polifosfato?

Polifosfato is a food ingredient that belongs to the class of phosphates, and it's commonly used as an emulsifying agent, sequestrant, and stabilizer in processed foods. It helps improve the texture, flavor, and appearance of food products by enhancing the water retention capacity, preventing discoloration, and increasing the shelf life. Polifosfato also plays a crucial role in food safety by inhibiting bacterial growth, reducing the risk of contamination, and maintaining the pH balance. However, excessive consumption of polifosfato has been linked to health issues like high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, and kidney damage, so it's important to use it in moderation.
