So, what is wodorowęglan amonu?

Wodorowęglan amonu, also known as ammonium bicarbonate, is a white powder with a mild ammonia odor. It's commonly used in baking as a leavening agent, helping dough rise and creating a light, fluffy texture. Unlike other chemical leaveners, such as baking powder and baking soda, ammonium bicarbonate reacts quickly and completely, leaving no residue or aftertaste. It's also used as a cleaning agent, particularly in the food industry, and as a fertilizer for plants. Despite its many applications, it should be handled with care, as it can release harmful fumes when heated or ingested.
