So, what is silicate de magnésium?

Silicate de magnésium, also known as magnesium silicate, is a naturally occurring mineral that is commonly used as a food ingredient. It is a fine, white powder that is insoluble in water and has a neutral taste. Magnesium silicate is added to food products as an anti-caking agent, which helps prevent clumping and ensures that the product remains free-flowing. It is also used as a stabilizer, thickener, and texturizer in a variety of food products, including spices, seasonings, and processed cheese. Magnesium silicate is considered safe for consumption and has no known adverse health effects.
