So, what is ammonium phosphate?

Ammonium phosphate is a white, crystalline powder that is commonly used as a food ingredient and fertilizer. It is made by reacting ammonia with phosphoric acid, resulting in a compound that contains both nitrogen and phosphorus. As a food ingredient, ammonium phosphate is often used as a leavening agent in baked goods, helping them rise and become fluffy. It is also used as a nutrient source for yeast and as a buffering agent to regulate pH levels in processed foods. In addition, ammonium phosphate is widely used in agriculture as a fertilizer due to its high nutrient content.
