So, what is polyfosfaten?

Polyphosphates are a group of food additives that are widely used in the food industry for their ability to improve the texture and moisture retention of various foods. These compounds are typically derived from inorganic phosphates and can be found in a wide range of food products such as meats, cheeses, and baked goods. Polyphosphates are used in the production of processed meats, where they act as binders, emulsifiers, and stabilizers. They also play a role in preventing the formation of ice crystals in frozen foods, which helps to maintain the quality of the product. While polyphosphates have been approved for use in food by regulatory agencies, some studies suggest that high levels of consumption may have negative health effects.
