Tripotassium Phosphate Formula

Tripotassium phosphate is a water-soluble ionic salt which has the chemical formula K3PO4. It is used as a food additive for its properties as an emulsifier, foaming agent, and whipping agent.[1] In combination with fatty acids, it is a potential antimicrobial agent in poultry processing.[2] As a fertilizer, its proportions of N, P2O5, and K2O are 0-33-67.Trisodium phosphate (TSP) is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula Na3PO4. It is a white, granular or crystalline solid, highly soluble in water producing an alkaline solution. TSPs are used as cleaning agent, lubricant, food additive, stain remover and degreaser.[7]Potassium phosphate is a generic term for the salts of potassium and phosphate ions including:
