So, what is carbonate acide de potassium?

Potassium carbonate, also known as carbonate acide de potassium, is a white, odorless powder with a salty taste. It is a highly water-soluble salt that is commonly used in the food industry as a pH regulator, bulking agent, and leavening agent. As a leavening agent, it reacts with acidic components in baking recipes to produce carbon dioxide, which helps the dough or batter rise. Additionally, it is used in the production of soft drinks, wine, and beer, as well as in the manufacturing of soaps and glass. Potassium carbonate is generally considered safe for consumption in small quantities and is commonly used as an alternative to sodium carbonate.
