So, what is carbonate d'ammoniùm?

Carbonate d'ammonium, also known as ammonium carbonate, is a white, crystalline powder that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baking. It has a strong ammonia smell and produces carbon dioxide gas when heated, which helps baked goods rise and become light and fluffy. Carbonate d'ammonium is often used in traditional European and Scandinavian recipes, such as cookies, crackers, and gingerbread. It is also sometimes used in the production of certain pharmaceuticals and in the manufacturing of plastics and textiles. However, due to its strong odor and potential health risks if ingested in large quantities, carbonate d'ammonium has largely been replaced by other leavening agents in modern baking.
