Why is Sodium Phosphate an important ingredient for a marinade?
Phosphates are used in meat products to increase water holding capacity and increase yields, which helps in making a juicier final product. Also known as Cold Phosphate and used at a rate of 2 oz per 25 lb of meat. By using sodium phosphate in meat products, the pH level of the meat is increase and moved away from its natural isoelectric pH point (which is around 5.2). As the pH shifts away from the isolectric point, the water holding capacity of meat products is increased because there are more available negative protein charges for water to bind with. Sodium Phosphate also increases the water holding capacity by increasing the distance between proteins which in-turn allows for more water to enter the meat product and the water is held in the myofibrils by its capillary forces. Cold Phosphate and Sodium Phosphates can also help increase the shelf life of food products because of its antioxidant properties which reduces the rate of lipid and fat oxidation.
