So, what is bicarbonato de potasio?

Bicarbonato de potasio, also known as potassium bicarbonate, is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used in the food industry as a buffering agent, leavening agent, and pH adjusting agent. It is a natural substance that occurs in small quantities in fruits and vegetables but can also be synthesized chemically. Bicarbonato de potasio is often used as a substitute for baking soda in low-sodium diets because it contains less sodium. It is also used in fire extinguishers, fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals due to its ability to neutralize acid and regulate pH levels.
