So, what is triphosphate?

Triphosphate, also known as polyphosphate, is a chemical compound consisting of three phosphate groups joined by high-energy phosphoanhydride bonds. It is commonly used in the food industry as a food additive and preservative due to its ability to bind with metal ions, which can prolong shelf life by preventing oxidation and spoilage. Triphosphate can also be found naturally in certain foods, such as seafood and meats, where it plays a role in regulating enzyme activity and cellular metabolism. While triphosphate has been deemed safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, some studies suggest that excessive consumption may lead to negative health effects.
