So, what is tetrasodium diphosphate?

Tetrasodium diphosphate is a food ingredient commonly used as a food additive and preservative. It is a white, odorless, and water-soluble powder that is often added to processed foods to help maintain their texture and shelf life. This ingredient is made by combining sodium carbonate and phosphoric acid, and is known for its ability to bind to minerals, which can help prevent discoloration in foods. Although generally recognized as safe by the FDA, it is important to use tetrasodium diphosphate in moderation, as excessive consumption may lead to negative health effects.
