So, what is % phosphoric acid?

Phosphoric acid is a clear, colorless liquid with a sharp, acidic taste. It is a common food ingredient used primarily as an acidulant to enhance the flavor of soft drinks, jams, and other food products. This ingredient is also commonly used as a pH adjuster in many processed foods. Phosphoric acid is produced by treating phosphate rock with sulfuric acid and is often used in combination with other acids to provide a tartness that balances the sweetness of certain foods. Although safe for consumption in small amounts, excessive intake of phosphoric acid may lead to health problems such as tooth decay and bone loss.
