So, what is kaliumbicarbonat?

Kaliumbicarbonat, also known as potassium bicarbonate, is a white crystalline compound commonly used in the food industry as a leavening agent. With a chemical formula of KHCO3, it releases carbon dioxide when mixed with an acid, causing dough and batter to rise. In addition to baking, kaliumbicarbonate has also been used as a nutritional supplement due to its high levels of potassium, which plays a crucial role in maintaining proper bodily functions such as muscle contractions and heart health. This versatile ingredient can be found in a variety of baked goods, including cakes, bread, and pastries, as well as in dietary supplements and medications.
