Description: Magnesium Pyrophosphate is produced from applying heat to magnesium phosphate from non-animal origin.
Phosphates are also used in making baking powder and cola drinks, and great quantities are used in fertilizers and detergents.
Phosphates are present normally in all living things and are an essential component of our diet.
A phosphate is a salt of phosphoric acid; therefore two phosphate strings are called polyphosphate.
