So, what is phosphate dicalcique?

Phosphate dicalcique, also known as dicalcium phosphate, is a white, odorless powder that is commonly used as a food ingredient. It is a calcium salt of phosphoric acid and is typically derived from rock phosphate. This ingredient is often used as a source of calcium and phosphorus in foods, particularly in baked goods, dairy products, and supplements. It can also be used as a leavening agent and as a buffer to regulate acidity in foods. Phosphate dicalcique is generally considered safe for consumption in moderate amounts, but excessive consumption may lead to negative health effects such as kidney damage.
