So, what is carbonate de potassium?

Carbonate de potassium is a white, odorless, and water-soluble salt with the chemical formula K2CO3. It is commonly used in the food industry as a leavening agent in baked goods due to its ability to react with acids, producing carbon dioxide gas, which causes the dough or batter to rise. It also has a range of other applications, including in the production of soaps, glass, and fertilizers. In food, it is used in small amounts and is considered safe for consumption by regulatory bodies. However, excessive consumption can lead to health issues, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
