So, what is kaliumcarbonate?

Kaliumcarbonate, also known as potassium carbonate, is a white, odorless powder with a salty taste. It is a chemical compound that is often used in the food industry as a buffering agent, pH adjuster, and leavening agent in baked goods. Kaliumcarbonate is also used in the production of soap, glass, and fertilizers. It is a water-soluble substance that can react with acids to produce carbon dioxide gas, making it useful in the production of carbonated beverages. Additionally, it has been used in traditional medicine as an alkalizing agent and has been studied for potential benefits in treating osteoporosis and other medical conditions.
