So, what is to pyrophosphate?

Pyrophosphate refers to a group of chemical compounds that contain two phosphate groups bonded together. It is commonly used in the food industry as a stabilizer, emulsifier, and thickening agent. Pyrophosphate helps prevent food from clumping and ensures consistent texture and appearance. Additionally, it can be found in baking powders, where it reacts with bicarbonate to produce carbon dioxide gas, which helps dough rise. Despite its widespread use, some studies have linked consumption of pyrophosphate to potential health risks, including inflammation and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, it is imperative to consume foods containing pyrophosphate in moderation.
