So, what is potassium triphosphate?

Potassium triphosphate is a food additive commonly used in the production of processed meats, seafood, and dairy products. As a white powder, it acts as a preservative by preventing discoloration and oxidation of the food. Potassium triphosphate also helps to improve the texture of foods such as sausages, allowing them to retain moisture and stay tender. Additionally, it can act as an emulsifier, helping to keep ingredients in a stable mixture. While generally considered safe for consumption, high levels of potassium triphosphate intake may lead to potential health risks such as high blood pressure and kidney damage.
