Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (SAPP) Granular is an anhydrous white material. This product is used as an acidulant, buffering agent, coagulant, emulsifying agent, dispersing agent, protein modifier, and sequestrant.


SAPP Used in Foods & Beverages

SAPP reacts with baking soda and water as well as reacting with calcium ion and protein in flour and milk for a secondary reaction.

In non-dairy creamers, SAPP is added to protect the proteins from heat dehydration, to stabilize the fat emulsion, and to buffer the product. Processed potatoes are protected from iron-induced darkening when treated with SAPP. Addition of SAPP to albacore tuna during canning decreases or prevents formation of struvite crystals. SAPP is used in meat processing to accelerate development of red color in wieners, bologna, and other emulsion-type meat products SAPP can be used as an emulsifying agent during cheese processing to produce a hard, non-melting cheese product
