So, what is dibasic sodium phosphate?

Dibasic sodium phosphate, also known as disodium hydrogen phosphate, is a white, odorless powder that's commonly used as a food additive. With the chemical formula Na2HPO4, it serves as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and buffering agent in various processed foods, including cheese, baked goods, and meats. It can be found in both natural and synthetic forms, although the synthetic version is more commonly used. Dibasic sodium phosphate is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA when used in small quantities, but larger amounts may cause adverse health effects such as diarrhea or electrolyte imbalances.
