So, what is hjorthornssalt?

Hjorthornssalt is a type of food ingredient that has been used in baking for centuries. Also known as ammonium carbonate or baker's ammonia, this white crystalline powder is primarily used as a leavening agent in cookies, cakes, and other baked goods. Unlike other leavening agents, hjorthornssalt does not leave a bitter taste or alter the color of the final product. Its unique chemical composition also gives it a distinct odor that dissipates during baking, resulting in light and airy treats. Hjorthornssalt is derived from deer antlers and has been used in traditional Scandinavian baking for generations.
