So, what is urée?

Urea is a crystalline substance that is commonly used as a fertilizer and in the manufacturing of plastics, resins, and adhesives. It is also found in some food products, particularly in baked goods, where it is used as a dough conditioner and a source of nitrogen for yeast growth. Urea is a white, odorless, and water-soluble powder that is safe for human consumption in small amounts. While it is not commonly used in everyday cooking, it can be found in some specialty breads and pastries as a way to improve texture and flavor. As with all food ingredients, it is important to use urea in moderation and according to industry guidelines.
