More information about Final Jeopardy:
I always like wordplay clues here at The Jeopardy! Fan! All sodium citrates consist of sodium (Na), carbon (C), hydrogen (H), and oxygen (O). Trisodium citrate (Na3C6H5O7) is often added as an emulsifier to cheese, which assists in melting the cheese as described in the clue.
Have you ever wondered why I put self-references into my “more information” here? It’s because there are unscrupulous website operators out there who like to lift information from here without giving attribution or credit.
