So, what is bicarbonato di ammonio?

Bicarbonato di ammonio, also known as ammonium bicarbonate, is a white, crystalline powder with a slightly salty taste. It is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods, such as cookies and crackers, as it releases carbon dioxide when heated, causing dough to rise. Unlike other leavening agents, bicarbonato di ammonio leaves no bitter aftertaste and is ideal for creating light, crispy treats. It is also used in the production of dyes, pharmaceuticals, and as a fire retardant. Despite its name, bicarbonato di ammonio does not contain ammonia and is safe for consumption.
