Ammonium phosphates are a type of inorganic compound that find common use as an ingredient in various food products. They are typically used as a leavening agent, helping to increase the volume and lightness of baked goods like cakes and breads by releasing carbon dioxide gas when heated. Despite being derived from chemicals, ammonium phosphates are generally regarded as safe for consumption by regulatory bodies like the FDA. However, some individuals may experience mild digestive discomfort or allergic reactions to this ingredient, so it's important to read labels carefully if you have specific dietary needs or restrictions.
