What Is Trisodium Phosphate in Cereal?

Trisodium Phosphate in Cereal

Are you worried about the cereal that you eat every morning may contain harmful substances like paint thinner? Your suspicion is correct. Cereal that we purchase from the supermarket does contain an inorganic compound known as Trisodium phosphate (TSP).

Freshly cooked cereal is hard and has some astringency to it. The above-mentioned property of Trisodium phosphate (TSP) also changes the natural color of cereal (which is dusty brown) and makes it appear golden yellow.
