What is Dicalcium Phosphate
Dicalcium phosphate is an ionic salt, meaning it's made up of charged particles of calcium and phosphate. It has the chemical formula CaHPO4; it's a combination of positively charged particles of calcium, and negatively charged particles of hydrogen phosphate, which is interchangeable with phosphate in the body. As such, it's a source of both the mineral calcium and of phosphate, which you use for a variety of purposes, explains the Linus Pauling Institute. These include producing bone matrix and synthesizing DNA, which is genetic material.
Dicalcium Phosphate Applications
Dicalcium Phosphate is used as one kind of food additives, as Calcium and Phosphate sources for human body:
Calcium Uses
Though dicalcium phosphate isn't the best possible source of calcium because of its low quantity of calcium as a percent of weight, it's still a source of this important mineral. You need calcium to maintain the bone structure, but also use it for a number of other things, explains Dr. Lauralee Sherwood in her book "Human Physiology." Uses of calcium include cell communication, neural signals and muscle contractions.
Dicalcium phosphate is also a source of phosphorus. While humans typically don't need phosphorus supplements, notes the Linus Pauling Institute, many animals do, so dicalcium phosphate has extensive application as a supplement in animal feed, according to Drugs.com. The bioavailability of phosphorus---the amount an animal can actually take up and use---is much higher from dicalcium phosphate than from other phosphorus supplements, making it a valuable addition to feed.
Dicalcium Phosphate Side Effects
While Calcium supplements and phosphates are normally well tolerated, there are some rare side effects. The basics are stomach pain, loss of appetite and constipation. But this is normally the result of taking too much of the chemical rather than from taking the pill itself. High overdoses are accompanied by vomiting and weakness.
Dicalcium Phosphate Dosage
In general, about 4 grams per day is the maximum that a healthy adult should take, while for children, the maximum is roughly 250 milligrams per day. For older children, this might go up to 1,200 or 1,300 milligrams per day, including all other forms of calcium such as from milk, yogurt or cheese. Calcium can, at high doses, inhibit the absorption of other nutrients. If you have bad kidneys, this drug should be avoided. Increased urination might be a sign that your kidneys cannot handle a large dose of calcium in this form.
