So, what is carbonatos de amónio?

Carbonatos de amónio, also known as ammonium carbonates, are a common food ingredient that acts as a leavening agent in baked goods. It is a white crystalline powder that releases carbon dioxide gas when exposed to heat or acids, causing the dough or batter to rise and creating a light and airy texture in the final product. Ammonium carbonates have a distinctive odor and are commonly used in traditional European baked goods like cookies, biscuits, and cakes. This ingredient is also used in the production of some chocolates and cocoa-based products.
