So, what is bicarbonat de amoniu?

Bicarbonat de amoniu, also known as ammonium bicarbonate, is a food-grade chemical compound that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baking. It is a white crystalline powder with a slightly ammoniacal odor and a unique ability to release carbon dioxide when heated. This results in the expansion of dough or batter, which creates a light, airy texture in baked goods like cookies, biscuits, and crackers. Bicarbonat de amoniu is preferred by some bakers over other leavening agents due to its lack of residual taste and its ability to produce a crisp texture in baked goods. It is also a popular ingredient in traditional European and Chinese baked goods.
