So, what is diphosphate de sodium?

Diphosphate de sodium is a food ingredient commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods. It is a white, crystalline powder with a slightly tart taste and is also known as disodium pyrophosphate. This ingredient reacts with baking soda to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes dough or batter to rise. Diphosphate de sodium is also used in some processed meats to improve their texture and moisture retention. While generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies, some studies suggest that high levels of consumption may lead to health issues, so it's important to consume this ingredient in moderation.
