Uses:Magnesium Phosphateis an anti caking agent found in salt substitutes, sweetened coconut and prepared mustard.
Abnormally high intakes of magnesium carry potentially harmful effects, including tissue damage, the rupture of blood cells, kidney damage and heart arrhythmia that can lead to cardiac arrest.
Intakes greater than 18 grams at once can result in hyperkalemia (too much magnesium in the bodily fluids) with serious and even fatal results.
Description:Magnesium Phosphateis found in the brain, spinal cord, heart, liver, lungs, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, intestines, thyroid gland, as well as the nerve and muscle cells.
It is therefore an essential mineral.
Impure phosphoric acid has its main application in fertilisers, and also in the synthesis of pure phosphoric acid. In turn pure phosphoric acid is used in food, detergents, pharmaceuticals and metal treatment (e.g. pickling, cleaning, rust-proofing, polishing).
