So, what is ammoniumcarbonaten?

Ammoniumcarbonaten, also known as ammonium carbonate, is a white crystalline powder with a strong odor of ammonia. It is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods such as cookies, crackers, and biscuits. Ammoniumcarbonaten works by releasing carbon dioxide gas when it is heated, causing the dough to rise and giving the final product a light and fluffy texture. Additionally, it can also be used as a pH buffer and emulsifier in certain food products. However, due to its strong odor, it is typically used in small quantities and is often substituted with other leavening agents such as baking powder or soda.
