So, what is phosphate monopotassique?

Phosphate monopotassique is a chemical compound that consists of a positively charged potassium ion and a negatively charged phosphate group. It is commonly used as a food additive to regulate acidity, prevent spoilage, and enhance the texture of various processed foods. Phosphate monopotassique is also used in the production of baking powder, where it reacts with sodium bicarbonate to create carbon dioxide, causing baked goods to rise. While generally considered safe for consumption in small quantities, excessive intake of phosphate monopotassique has been linked to adverse health effects, including cardiovascular disease and kidney damage.
