Ammonium Carbonate, also termed Baker's salt, is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula (NH4)2CO3. It appears as a colorless powder with a strong ammonia-like odor under ambient conditions. It is a combination of Ammonium Carbamate and Ammonium Bicarbonate, which is commonly used to make fertilizers. It slowly decomposes in the presence of air to produce ammonia and carbon dioxide. It is considered a chemical leavening agent owing to its alkaline pH and is widely employed in the baking industry as a substitute of baking powder and baking soda. Due to its high purity, it completely conforms to the FCC (Food Chemicals Codex) Grade and that makes it ideal for foods, pharmaceuticals, and medications. In the United States of America, Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Ammonium Carbonate, FCC online at laballey.com.
