So, what is tetrasodium edta?

Tetrasodium EDTA is a water-soluble compound commonly used as a chelating agent in various food products. It helps retain the color, flavor, and texture of food while also improving its stability and shelf life. It works by binding to metal ions present in food and preventing them from reacting with other compounds that can cause spoilage. This ingredient is also used in personal care products and pharmaceuticals as a preservative and stabilizer. Despite some controversy surrounding its safety, tetrasodium EDTA remains a widely accepted food additive approved by regulatory agencies worldwide.
