As an essential element for life, phosphorus always exits in many forms in the human body, and the most common form is phosphate. Phosphate is a molecule composed of phosphorus and oxygen and is added to various foods like salt. Sodium hexametaphosphate is the most widely used phosphates as food additive in food processing industry. But you need to buy the food grade sodium hexametaphosphate and pay attention to the dosage.
Sealing Effect on Metal Ions. Sodium hexametaphosphate can chelate with the metal ions in solutions such as, Ca2 +, Mg2 +, Cu2 +, and Fe2, to form soluble chelates, which can prevent food from discoloration and decomposition. It can also prevent or delay the oxidation of unsaturated fats, inhibit the growth of microbial and play a role in antiseptic and antibacterial.
The Role of Emulsification And Dispersion. Sodium hexametaphosphate has the function of dispersing insoluble materials in water and forming a stable suspension to prevent the suspension from adhering and agglomerating, such as the emulsification of fat and proteins.
Buffer Function. SHMP can stabilize the liquid phase in the medium to a certain PH value effectively and make the taste of the food more delicious.
Enhance The Role of Protein. Food grade sodium hexametaphosphate has a strengthening effect on proteins and glue globulin, which can increase the water retention of meat, improve the water permeability, so as to promote food softening, improve food quality and maintain good food flavor.
Water Retention Performance. Food grade sodium hexametaphosphate is a highly hydrophilic water retention agent, which can stabilize the moisture contained in food. It can be used in meat products, aquatic products, pasta products as quality improver, chelating agents, water retaining agents, fermentation leavening agents and PH adjuster. It can also be used for the preservation of meat products. The quality of water retention performance of food grade sodium hexametaphosphate is related to the additive amount, PH value of the food and ionic strength.
Food processing and the use of food additive must be accordance with food safety regulations. Manufacturers producing food additives need to pass a series of food safety certifications. Chemate is a reliable manufacturer of various types of phosphates with food additive production license. The food grade sodium hexametaphosphate for sale in our company is produced by the thermal food grade phosphoric acid and soda ash, which has less impurities and less metal content.
