So, what is ammoniumcarbonat?

Ammonium carbonate is a white, powdery food ingredient that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baking. It is a mixture of two compounds - ammonium bicarbonate and ammonium carbamate - that release carbon dioxide when heated, causing dough and batter to rise. Ammonium carbonate has a strong ammonia odor and is highly soluble in water, making it easy to incorporate into recipes. It is often used in traditional European baked goods, such as gingerbread, cookies, and crackers, to give them a light, airy texture. However, due to its strong odor, ammonium carbonate is not as commonly used in modern baking as other leavening agents like baking powder and baking soda.
