Diammonium Phosphate or in a short form known as DAP. DAP is a white granular crystal that is easily soluble in water.
DAP is used in the food industry as a fermentation and nourishment agent in breading making and brewing.
Diammonium phosphate is a compound that has the role of an essential yeast nutrient. It is used as an enhancer for other micronutrients in order to speed up yeast metabolism, accelerate fermentation reactions and increase carbon dioxide production. With its buffering capacity, it plays an important role in regulating pH in sponge doughs.
