So, what is disodium diphosphates?

Disodium diphosphates, also known as sodium acid pyrophosphate, are food-grade chemicals that act as a leavening agent in baked goods. The compound is a white, odorless powder that dissolves in water and forms an acidic solution. When heated, it releases carbon dioxide gas, which helps dough rise and become light and fluffy. Disodium diphosphates also function as a sequestrant, preventing the discoloration of canned fruits and vegetables by chelating metals. This versatile ingredient is commonly found in cake mixes, instant puddings, breakfast cereals, and canned meat products.
