Is there Sodium Hexametaphosphate in Food Additives?

The function of sodium hexametaphosphate in food additives can improve food quality, nutritional value and sensory properties. It can also prevent food spoilage, prolong food preservation period, facilitate food processing and improve the utilization rate of raw materials. Reasonable use of food-grade sodium hexametaphosphate is beneficial to food and human health. In food production, as long as food additives are added according to national standards, consumers can safely eat them.

Some people may wonder why food additives must be used. In fact, food additives are not only important but also necessary for modern life. Because, without them, many foods in life will increase the breeding of disease bacteria, which is not good for health.

Sodium hexametaphosphate is added to meat products, baked foods, convenience foods, fruits, even soy sauce and vinegar to play the role of preservative and antistaling agent. Having said that, we have to remind everyone that foods that claim to be free of preservatives are in fact more susceptible to pollution and deterioration after opening. Pollution-free and no addition are often gimmicks created by businesses to cater to consumers’ psychology.

Food additive is not the product of modern food industry. Although it has a very modern name, it has been used in food for a long time. Sodium hexametaphosphate can effectively activate the water retention agent of meat protein. Its existence is to make food taste better, look better and have better quality on the premise of ensuring safety.

Regardless of the types of food additives, the state has strict limits on the use standards of food additives. Industrial-grade sodium hexametaphosphate can not be used in food addition, but must be food grade, high in purity and low in heavy metals, which meet the national standards.
