So, what is karmel amoniakalny?

Karmel amoniakalny, also known as ammonium carbonate, is a powdery white substance used in baking foods like cookies and crackers. Made of ammonia and carbon dioxide, it's unique because it leavens dough without imparting any flavor. Unlike other leavening agents, karmel amoniakalny releases gas slowly over time, resulting in crispier baked goods. It was once commonly used in traditional recipes, but due to its strong odor during baking, it has been replaced by modern alternatives. Despite this, some bakers still swear by its ability to create the perfect texture in their baked treats.
