Description

Phosphate is an additive that occurs in combination with, for example, sodium and calcium which together form salts, these are called phosphates. The additive phosphate is often used in food to, for example, make meat more tender or as an anti-caking agent.

Too high levels of phosphates/phosphorus can have a negative effect on both kidneys and bones as calcium can leak out and lead to problems with blood circulation.

This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 banking days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test results, you will receive a report in English about your values and the doctor's comment.

Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.

Information

What is the difference between phosphate and phosphorus?

Phosphorus is a vital element that is produced from natural minerals. The largest amount is stored in the skeleton. Phosphorus is important for the formation and strengthening of bones and teeth and is also important for the balance of acid and base in the body as well as energy production for the body's energy-demanding functions.

We get phosphorus through our diet, mainly protein-rich foods and dairy products such as milk, cheese, meat and legumes.

Phosphate is an additive, it often occurs in combination with, for example, sodium and calcium which form salts - these are called phosphates.

Phosphates are often used as food additives to, for example, make meat more tender or as anti-caking agents and acidity regulators. If additives are used in food, these must be stated in the list of contents.

How much phosphorus/phosphate is the recommended daily intake?

The recommended daily intake of phosphorus/phosphate differs depending on, among other things, age and during pregnancy and breastfeeding. For women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, the recommended daily intake is 700 milligrams and 900 milligrams, respectively. For men and women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding, 600 milligrams is the recommended daily intake.
