So, what is diphosphater?

Diphosphates, also known as diphosphoric acid or pyrophosphates, are inorganic compounds that are commonly used as food additives. They function as emulsifiers, stabilizers, and leavening agents, allowing baked goods to rise and preventing them from collapsing during the baking process. Diphosphates are typically found in processed foods, such as bread, cakes, and pastries, as well as in some meat products. They are generally considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, but some studies have suggested that high levels of diphosphates in the diet may be associated with negative health effects, such as increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
