Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Monocalcium Phosphate Properties?

A: Monicalcium phosphate is a chemical compound with the formula Ca(H2PO4)2. Calcium dihydrogen phosphate is commonly found as the monocalcium phosphate monohydrate and monocalcium phosphate anhydrous. White crystal powder,Easily soluble in hydrochloric acid,nitric acid,soluble in cool water,almost insoluble in alcohol.monocalcium phosphate loses crystal water at 109 ℃ and decoposes to calcium metaphosphate at 203 ℃.

Q: Monocalcium Phosphate Standard Applications?
1.Monocalcium phosphate feed grade
Extensively applied as additives of Phosphorous and Calcium in aquatic animals feed.Higher water solubility of MCP is required in aquatic animals feed.The experiment indicates that the utilization rate of phosphorous is about 98%,which is the best one among calcium phosphates.Compared with DCP's 20-60% utiliztion rate of phosphorous,MCP can make higher profit.
2.Monocalcium phosphate food grade
Calcium dihydrogen phosphate is also used in the food industry as a leavening agent to cause baked goods to rise. Because it is acidic, when combined with an alkali ingredient, commonly sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) or potassium bicarbonate, it reacts to produce carbon dioxide and a salt. Outward pressure of the carbon dioxide gas causes the rising effect.
