So, what is polyphosphates de sodium?

Polyphosphates de sodium is a food additive that belongs to the family of phosphates. They are used as emulsifiers, stabilizers, and texture enhancers in a wide range of processed foods such as meat products, seafood, cheese, and baked goods. Sodium polyphosphates help to improve the water-holding capacity of food products, increase their shelf life, and prevent spoilage. While they are generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies, some studies suggest that high levels of sodium polyphosphates consumption may lead to adverse health effects such as kidney damage and high blood pressure.
