So, what is phosphates d'et de potassium?

Phosphates d'et de potassium, or potassium phosphates, are a group of inorganic compounds widely used as food additives to enhance the texture, stability, and shelf life of various processed foods, including baked goods, dairy products, and meat products. They are typically synthesized by reacting phosphoric acid with potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate, resulting in white, odorless, and water-soluble crystals. Potassium phosphates are recognized as safe by regulatory agencies and are often preferred over other types of phosphates due to their lower sodium content. As a food ingredient, they play an important role in the food industry, contributing to the overall quality and safety of processed foods.
