So, what is ammonia caramel?

Ammonia caramel is a dark brown, syrupy liquid used as a food coloring and flavoring agent in many culinary applications. It is made by heating a mixture of sugar and ammonium compounds until it darkens and develops a rich, complex flavor profile. The resulting caramel has a distinctive aroma and flavor, with notes of burnt sugar, toffee, and molasses. Ammonia caramel is commonly used in the production of cola drinks, baked goods, and confectionery, and can also be used to enhance the color and flavor of savory dishes such as gravies and sauces. Due to its intense flavor and dark color, only small amounts of ammonia caramel are needed to achieve the desired effect.
