So, what is calcium polyphospate?

Calcium polyphosphate is a naturally occurring mineral that consists of calcium and phosphate ions arranged in a chain-like structure. This compound is commonly used as a food additive due to its ability to act as a source of dietary calcium, an essential nutrient for bone health. Calcium polyphosphate is also known to have antimicrobial properties that can help extend the shelf life of food products. Unlike other calcium sources, calcium polyphosphate does not alter the taste or texture of foods, making it a popular ingredient in a variety of processed foods, including baked goods, dairy products, and beverages.
