So, what is sodium polyphosphate?

Sodium polyphosphate is a versatile food ingredient commonly used as a sequestrant, emulsifier, and thickening agent. It is a type of sodium salt that consists of a chain of multiple phosphate units, making it highly soluble in water. This ingredient can be found in a variety of food products, such as cheese, canned seafood, and processed meats. Sodium polyphosphate helps improve the texture and appearance of these foods while also prolonging their shelf life by preventing spoilage. Despite its many benefits, excessive consumption of sodium polyphosphate can lead to health issues, such as high blood pressure and kidney problems, so it should be consumed in moderation.
