What is Monocalcium Phosphate?

Monocalcium phosphate is a substance that’s often used in baking to make dough rise and in gardening or farming as a fertilizer to help plants grow. It’s a white powder that works like magic in feeding plants or baking cakes and bread. While it comes from minerals that are naturally found in the earth, monocalcium phosphate is usually made through a manufacturing process, so it’s considered to be synthetic rather than completely natural. This means even though its ingredients are from nature, the way it’s made is with human help in factories.
