So, what is potassium carbonate?

Potassium carbonate, also known as pearl ash or potash, is a white, odorless powder that is commonly used as a food ingredient. It is a form of potassium salt that is highly soluble in water, making it easy to incorporate into many different types of recipes. Potassium carbonate is often used as a leavening agent in baked goods and as a pH stabilizer in various food and beverage products. It is also used in the production of soap and glass, and as a fertilizer in agriculture. Despite its many uses, it is important to handle potassium carbonate with care, as it can be caustic and potentially harmful if ingested or inhaled in large quantities.
