So, what is monopotassium phosphate?

Monopotassium phosphate is a colorless or white crystalline salt that is commonly used as a food additive and fertilizer. It is an excellent source of both phosphorus and potassium, two essential nutrients for plant growth and development. In food, monopotassium phosphate is used as an emulsifier, a buffering agent, and a leavening agent. It can be found in a variety of processed foods such as baked goods, canned fruits and vegetables, and soft drinks. Monopotassium phosphate is generally considered safe for consumption in small amounts, but excessive intake may lead to health problems such as an upset stomach or an imbalance in electrolytes.
