So, what is sodium tripolyphosphaté?

Sodium tripolyphosphate is a versatile food ingredient commonly used as a preservative, emulsifier and texture enhancer. It is a white crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water and has a slightly alkaline taste. Sodium tripolyphosphate stabilizes food by binding with metal ions, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi. It also increases the water-holding capacity of meat products, making them more tender and juicy. Despite concerns over its safety when consumed in large quantities, sodium tripolyphosphate remains an approved food additive in many countries.
