Ammonium Carbonate Market : Growth, Demand and Key Players to 2027

Posted by Divakar on June 8th, 2017

Ammonium carbonate (E503) is salt and is also known as hartshorn and baker’s ammonia. It is a leaving agent that is used for baked goods, such as cookies, lekuchen, flat biscuits, and crackers. These are not used in cakes since ammonium carbonate imparts bad smell. It doesn’t leave any salty or soapy taste. Ammonium carbonate is the precursor to baking soda and baking powder and is an essential component in smelling salts.

Ammonium carbonate is a non-toxic white crystalline salt. Further, ammonium carbonate is also used as an emetic and active ingredient in cough syrups intended to dismiss the symptoms of bronchitis. Ammonium carbonates are also used as ingredients in certain smokeless tobacco products.

Ammonium carbonate is used as a leavening agent, mainly in the European Union. It also serves as an acidity regulator. The major factor driving the market being ammonium carbonate can be used as a substitute for baking powder. However, this can affect the taste as well as the texture of the finished products. Ammonium carbonate is intended to use as an ingredient in baked foods. These are available usually available in drug and specialty food stores. Ammonium carbonate is mainly used in thin products such as cookies, where the ammonium gas can escape easily. Whereas baked foods such as cake and pie will hold the ammonia gas. Ammonium usually comes in lumps, and they are required to be powdered before use and have to be stored in sealed container.
