So, what is dicalciumphosphat?

Dicalcium phosphate is a white, tasteless powder that is commonly used as a food additive to increase the calcium content of processed foods. It is also used as a dietary supplement to support bone health due to its high calcium and phosphorus content. This ingredient is created by reacting calcium carbonate with phosphoric acid, resulting in a compound that is easily absorbed by the body. Additionally, dicalcium phosphate can function as an anti-caking agent, preventing clumping in powders such as spices and flours. Despite being a safe and effective ingredient, excessive consumption can lead to digestive issues and mineral imbalances.
