More common name


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know another name for ammonium bicarbonate? I hear it's more popular in the UK than in the USA. I've never heard of it and I was looking to buy some but couldn't find it in the grocery store so I thought that possibly there's a more common name for it. I'm looking to use it as a low sodium replacement for baking soda. Thanks!

Ammonium hydrogen carbonate or Ammonium acid carbonate perhaps?





"Ammonia powder is ammonium bicarbonate' date=' a leavening agent that is a precursor of today's baking powder and baking soda; it must be ground to a powder before using. It is also known as hartshorn, carbonate of ammonia or powdered baking ammonia."


Sorry, should have googled it [u']first[/u]. My fault! :D
