So, what is monobasic potassium phosphate?

Monobasic potassium phosphate is a white crystalline powder commonly used as a food ingredient and additive. It's a source of phosphorus and potassium, which are important nutrients for the human body. Monobasic potassium phosphate is often added to dairy products like cheese, as well as baked goods, processed meats, and beverages. It is used as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and pH regulator in these products, improving their texture, shelf life, and overall quality. While safe for human consumption in small quantities, excessive consumption of monobasic potassium phosphate can have negative health effects.
