So, what is triphosphate pentasodique?

Triphosphate pentasodique, also known as sodium triphosphate, is a food additive commonly used as a preservative and emulsifier. It is a white, crystalline powder with the chemical formula Na5P3O10, and is soluble in water. Its ability to bind metal ions makes it useful for preventing discoloration and oxidation in seafood, while its emulsifying properties aid in the production of processed meats and cheeses. Although generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive consumption of products containing triphosphate pentasodique has been linked to negative health effects such as hypertension and kidney damage.
