Tricalcium Phosphate (a.k.a. TCP, Tribasic Calcium Phosphate, Bone Phosphate of Lime) is a calcium salt of phosphoric acid. It appears as a white crystalline powder, insoluble in water and organic solvents, but soluble in hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. TCP is produced commercially by treating hydroxyapatite with phosphoric acid and slaked lime, or heating a mixture of a calcium pyrophosphate and calcium carbonate. TCP is used in powdered spices as an anticaking agent, in baby powder, and as a nutritional supplement.
