Monocalcium Phosphate, Calcium Phosphate, (MCP) Food Grade

Size: 1kg
Sale price$75.00


MarkNature's Food Grade Monocalcium Phosphate (MCP) stands as a pivotal ingredient in the food industry, renowned as a highly efficient leavening agent. Rapid and effective, MCP swiftly releases carbon dioxide upon mixing, ensuring immediate leavening action, particularly favored in pancake mixes. Its incorporation in double-acting baking powders, often paired with slow-acting acids like sodium acid pyrophosphate (SAPP), ensures a balanced and controlled leavening process. This MCP formulation, when part of a baking powder, precisely balances the acid and alkali components to neutralize each other, maintaining the product's overall pH.
