So, what is d'aluminium?

"D'aluminium" refers to aluminum powder, a fine and light metallic ingredient commonly used in the food industry as a leavening agent for baked goods such as cakes, bread, and biscuits. It reacts with acidic ingredients such as cream of tartar or lemon juice, creating carbon dioxide gas that causes the dough or batter to rise during baking. Aluminum powder is also used as a coloring agent for confectionery products like candies and chocolates. Despite its numerous applications, excessive consumption of aluminum may pose health risks such as weakened bones and impaired brain function, making it crucial to use this ingredient in moderation.
