Why is this ingredient in my kids pancake syrup and fruit punch,among many other foods that I won’t bother taking the time to drag out each and every one right now,also with my incessant disdain regarding this subject ..but…nevertheless.I sit back and wonder….why? Why do we have to question our food when it is said to be safe?Also,with any serious side effects like,swollen kidney damage.just to name one….you would think a side effect like that would prevent it from passing the FDA, but NO! The Food and Death Administration does not care about you.It’s business as usual with the big pharmaceutical industry,it has nothing to do with caring about the public,but quite the contrary.
A trillion dollar business is in itself a being that needs to be fed,….and that type of being would like us..the feeble..I mean people…to continue to be down,to be sick, or dying,in hopes for us to transform into a submissive life long customer/victim,taking heed to the illusion for what it’s worth, on how each one of us accept or deny the obviousness on how misery takes us on by viciously keeping us spun,empty,or comparatively run,circling.Whereas were’re shown and taught deceit,so they say,while one attempts to embrace or even listen on how certain specifics may become lost against from that to what is parallel & intricately woven within the order to coincide or deplete,for succeeding with how to correlate that to which is negative and leaves us to become.
Pancake syrup tasted fine in the 80’s & 90’s without being saturated with pesticides masked as necessary preservatives.
Sodium Metaphosphate,Sodium Trimetaphosphate,and Sodium Hexametaphosphate,also known as Sodium Polymetaphosphate or Graham’s Salt, are all sodium polyphosphates made of repeating units of NaPO3.Sodium Metaphosphate is referred to as having a long chain of NaPO3 units,which is not soluble in water,giving it reason for the name of the insoluble metaphosphate.Now,Sodium Trimetaphosphate on the other hand has three NaPO3 units,while Sodium Hexametaphosphate has six NaPO3 units,but contrary to Sodium Metaphosphate,the”insoluble metaphosphate,”the two are soluble in water,and are referred to as glassy sodium polyphosphates.
So,what is it this unfamiliar ingredient nowadays that’s seemingly finding itself in almost everything we eat ? Well, it’s a sequestrant,a thickener,an emulsifier & texturizer.Also,the phosophorous in this additive acts as a corrosion inhibitor,and that my friend,is their reason for putting it in our food,as they claim,”these are all inorganic polyphosphate salts all funtcioning as chelating agents in cosmetics and food”.But Cosmetics ..? okay. .that’s cool,but in food ??.. huh?..Say what ???
So,I can see why it’s used in cosmetics as facial/moisturizer creams and treatments,but mostly found in foundations & mascara,also…hand creams,tooth whitening/toothpaste products,mouthwash,sunscreen moisturizer lotions & creams,bath oils & bath salts.All those things are fine,but why…WHY is the same exact ingredient in our food & beverages ?

One thought on “Sodium Hexametaphosphate causes kidney damage,so..why is it in Our Food?”
Sodium hexametaphosphate breaks down into sodium ions and phosphate ions, both of which are non harmful in appropriate doses. Sodium is half of the ions in salt (and we need it for proper nerve function), and phosphate is in everything, including each and every one of your cells, as it is necessary for cellular energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
While too much can be harmful to your kidneys, it’s very far down on the list of ingredients, so the dosage is minimal.
As a soil scientist, I use this compound in the lab regularly; trust me, the amount in Mrs. Butterworth’s is nothing compared to what labs around the world go through on a yearly basis.
I applaud you for being aware of what goes into your food and being health-conscious, but your efforts would be better spent on encouraging healthy eating practices, rather than speaking conspiratorially about unknown compounds.
