diglycerides that are derived from edible sources with phosphorus 
pentoxide (tetraphosphorus decoxide) followed by neutralization with 
sodium carbonate.
    (b) FDA is developing food-grade specifications for monosodium 
phosphate mono- and diglycerides in cooperation with the National 
Academy of Sciences. In the interim, this ingredient must be of a purity 
suitable for its intended use.
    (c) In accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1), the ingredient is used in 
food with no limitation other than current good manufacturing practice.
