So, what is węglany amonu?

Węglany amonu, also known as ammonium carbonate, is a food-grade chemical compound that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods. It is a white crystalline powder with a strong ammonia odor, and it can release carbon dioxide gas when heated, causing dough to rise. Unlike other leavening agents, węglany amonu does not require an acid to react and is therefore ideal for recipes that do not contain acidic ingredients. However, it is important to note that węglany amonu can only be used in small amounts due to its strong taste and odor.
