Monocalcium Phosphate, CAS# 7758-23-8, is a chemical compound manufactured through chemical synthesis, available as White granular or powder. Monocalcium Phosphate is widely used as food supplements. It is widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries.
No significant side effects reported. Prolonged using of phosphate salts may upset the balance of phosphates and other chemicals in the body. High blood phosphate level may lead to several side effects:
Ingestion of Monocalcium Phosphate in large quantity may hurt our health, please follow the guideline of using Monocalcium Phosphate: MTDI 70 mg/kg body weight (as P)
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Monocalcium Phosphate could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Monocalcium Phosphate in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Monocalcium Phosphate for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Monocalcium Phosphate is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
