Tetrasodium pyrophosphate, also called sodium pyrophosphate, tetrasodium phosphate or TSPP, is an inorganic compound with the formula Na4P2O7. As a salt, it is a white, water-soluble solid. It is composed of pyrophosphate anion and sodium ions. Toxicity is approximately twice that of table salt when ingested orally.Also known is the decahydrate Na4P2O7 · 10(H2O).
Tetrasodium pyrophosphate is produced by the reaction of furnace-grade phosphoric acid with sodium carbonate to form disodium phosphate, which is then heated to 450 °C to form tetrasodium pyrophosphate.
TetraSodium pyrophosphate is a salt composed of pyrophosphate and sodium ions.Toxicity when ingested orally is about twice that of table salt. Tetrasodium pyrophosphate is produced by sodium carbonatreaction with phosphorus grade phosphoric acid to form disodium phosphate, and then heated to 450°℃ to form tetrasodium pyrophosphate.Alternatively, TetraSodium pyrophosphate can be formed by molecular dehydration of dibasic sodium phosphate at 500 °C (932 °F).Primarily used as a food additive tetrasodium pyrophosphate (TSPP) is a salt composed of pyrophosphate and sodium ions that possesses approximately twice the toxicity of table salt when ingested orally.In general use, TSPP is used as an emulsifier, thickening agent,buffering agent, and a dispersing agent.
Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate Anhydrous is used in Food, Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Health & Personal care products, Agriculture/Animal Feed/Poultry. Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate functions as a coagulant, emulsifier, and sequestrant. The application of Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate such as in malted milk powders, instant puddings, cheese, chocolate drink powders, and tuna.
Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate Anhydrous also known as Anhydrous TSPP, Sodium Pyrophosphate, or Tetrasodium Diphosphate – is a white crystalline powder with a molecular formula of Na4P2O7.
