So, what is difosforany?

Difosforany, also known as diphosphates, are a class of food additives commonly used as leavening agents in baked goods. These compounds are composed of two phosphate groups and are highly effective in creating gas bubbles that help dough and batter rise. Difosforany also function as emulsifiers, aiding in the mixing of water and oil-based ingredients. They can be found in a variety of processed foods, including cake mixes, breads, and crackers. While generally considered safe for consumption, some studies have linked excessive consumption of difosforany to health issues such as kidney damage and heart disease.
