A WORLDWIDE LEADER IN PHOSPHATE CREATIVITY
Phosphorus, which is present in the hu-
man body in a proportion of about 10 g/
kg, is as indispensable to life as calcium,
nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
lt is a component of our bones, teeth and
nervous system, as weIl as of the DNA
which transmits our genetic heritage.
Like calcium, phosphorus needs to be
absorbed from an external source, such
as the phosphate salts in food. Better still,
tricalcium phosphates enable calcium
and phosphorus intake to be combined
and improve the nutritional properties of
many products. As for potassium phos-
phate, it enables better control over
dietary sodium intake.
Phosphorus is an integral part of the living
world. Like other elements, it can be found
in various forms in nature. These forms are
balanced and transformed according to a
