Tricalcium Phosphate

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am very new, day 1, and need to know if Tricalcium Phosphate is Whole30 approved. My favorite seasoning is Goya Adobo and these are the ingredients: Salt, Granulated Garlic, Tricalcium Phosphate (Prevents Caking), Oregano, Turmeric.

After a google search it says it occurs in nature, but one can never be too sure.

Thanks!!

Tricalcium phosphate is in a lot (maybe a majority) of commercial spice blends. About half of the stuff I use regularly contains it, including Ragin' Cajun seasoning which I like to use when I make collard greens.

So this is indeed an accepted ingredient?

p.s. The Adobo is good stuff too! I like the orange variety best.

I bought a bottle of Organic Chili Powder and the ingredients include "Tri-calcium Phosphate."  Yes, I've googled.  Yes, I've searched Whole30.  Can a moderator tell me if this ingredient is compliant?  Thank you.  Matt

From Wikipedia:

Quote

Tricalcium phosphate (sometimes abbreviated TCP) is a calcium salt of phosphoric acid

It's fine. As it says on the label, it's an anti-caking agent. Take a look at the additives sheet and remember that you're looking for MSG, carageenen and sulphites as well as sneaky sugars, soy and grains.
