So, what is amonijum-karbonat?

Ammonium carbonate, also known as baker's ammonia, is a white crystalline powder with a strong odor of ammonia. It is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods, particularly cookies and crackers, due to its ability to produce carbon dioxide gas when heated. This gas helps the dough rise and gives the final product a light, airy texture. Ammonium carbonate can also be used as a acidity regulator and in the production of ammonium salts, pharmaceuticals, and dyes. While it is a safe ingredient when used in moderation, excessive consumption can cause digestive discomfort and should be avoided.
