So, what is sodium aluminium phosphate?

Sodium aluminium phosphate is a white, odorless powder commonly used in baking powder and other food applications. This food additive acts as a leavening agent, helping dough and batter rise during baking. It is a versatile ingredient, used in a variety of baked goods including cakes, biscuits, and bread. In addition to its leavening properties, sodium aluminium phosphate also acts as a stabilizer and helps to prevent the discoloration of food products. While it is generally considered safe for consumption, excessive consumption may lead to negative health effects such as gastrointestinal issues.
