So, what is aluminium potassium silicate?

Aluminium potassium silicate is a food grade additive commonly used as an anticaking agent and thickener. It is a finely divided, white powder that is insoluble in water and has no significant taste or odor. This ingredient is made by combining aluminium oxide, potassium oxide, and silicon dioxide in a specific ratio, resulting in a highly stable and inert material that does not react with other ingredients. Aluminium potassium silicate is frequently found in baking mixes, powdered sugar, and grated cheese, where it prevents clumping and improves flowability. Its safe use has been approved by regulatory bodies worldwide.
