Ammonium Bicarbonate is an inorganic compound,chemically speaking, it is the bicarbonate salt of the ammonium ion. Thanks to its physicochemical properties this ingredient is used as a leavening and stabilizing agent, and as an acidity regulator.
The stabilizing property of Ammonium Bicarbonate allows maintaining the ideal physicochemical properties in a food; either preserving a food in a homogeneous state or by maintaining and intensifying a color.
Besides, it has the property to regulate the pH by controlling or modifying acidity or alkalinity of a food product.Finally, as a leavening agent, Ammonium Bicarbonate, alone or in combination with others,has the capability to release gas and, at the same time, increases batter and dough volume for baked goods. It is used in the food industry as a raising agent for flat baked goods, such as cookies and crackers and steamed buns.
