So, what is kaliumphosphate?

Kaliumphosphate is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used as a food ingredient. It is a potassium salt of phosphoric acid, with the chemical formula K3PO4. This ingredient has multiple functions in food processing, including acting as a buffer to regulate acidity and as a leavening agent to improve the texture of baked goods. Kaliumphosphate is also used as a source of potassium, an essential mineral that supports healthy muscle and nerve function. While it is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive consumption can lead to health issues such as hyperkalemia.
