So, what is carbonates de potassium?

Potassium carbonates, also known as potash, are chemical compounds consisting of potassium and carbonate ions. They are commonly used in the food industry as a buffering agent, pH regulator, and leavening agent in baked goods. Potassium carbonates are white, odorless, and soluble in water, making them easy to incorporate into various food formulations. They are also used in the production of glass, soap, and fertilizers. However, excessive consumption of potassium carbonates can lead to electrolyte imbalances, so they should be used in moderation and under professional guidance.
