So, what is du bicarbonate d'ammonium?

Du bicarbonate d'ammonium, also known as ammonium bicarbonate, is a chemical compound with the formula (NH4)HCO3. It is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods, particularly those that require a crisp texture. Unlike other leavening agents such as baking powder or yeast, ammonium bicarbonate releases ammonia gas when heated, which causes the dough to rise and expand rapidly. This results in a light and fluffy texture. It is also used as a pH buffering agent and as a fertilizer in agriculture. Ammonium bicarbonate has a distinct odor of ammonia and is water-soluble.
