So, what is monosodium phosphate?

Monosodium phosphate is a chemical compound commonly used as a food additive and dietary supplement. It is a white, odorless powder that is highly soluble in water and has a slightly acidic taste. This ingredient is often added to food products as a preservative or emulsifier, helping to extend their shelf life and maintain their texture. Additionally, monosodium phosphate can be used to adjust the pH of foods and beverages, as well as to enhance the flavor of certain products. While safe in small quantities, excessive consumption of monosodium phosphate can have negative health effects, including digestive issues and electrolyte imbalances.
