So, what is phosphoriç acid?

Phosphoric acid is a clear, odorless, and colorless liquid that is commonly used as an ingredient in various food products. It is a strong acid produced by the reaction of phosphate rock with sulfuric acid, and it has a tangy, sour taste. This versatile acid is used in the production of soft drinks, jams, jellies, and other food items to add tartness and acidity. Additionally, it is also used as a flavor enhancer and preservative agent in some processed foods. While generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, excessive consumption of phosphoric acid can lead to health issues such as tooth decay and kidney stones.
