So, what is und polyphosphate?

Und polyphosphate is a food ingredient commonly used as a stabilizer, emulsifier, and thickener in a variety of processed foods. It is a chain of molecules that have a phosphate group at one end, which allows it to bind with other food molecules and improve their texture, viscosity, and shelf life. Und polyphosphate is often found in meat products, seafood, and baked goods, where it helps retain moisture and prevent spoilage. While generally considered safe for consumption, some studies have suggested that excessive intake of und polyphosphate may have negative effects on health, making moderation key.
