Ammonium bicarbonate, also known as powdered baking ammonia, is a white crystalline solid with a chemical formula of NH4HCO3. It has an ammonia odor and is soluble in water. It decomposes easily to carbon dioxide, ammonia and water. This property makes it a leavening agent in making baked products like cakes and biscuits and hence known as baker’s ammonia. Even prior to the discovery of chemical synthesis of baking agents, salt of Hartshorn was used as a baking agent. Ammonium bicarbonate has white colored powered solid in physical appearance and must be stored in a cool dry place as it is thermally unstable. Ammonium bicarbonate dissolves in water to yield a clear colorless solution and the dissolution is endothermic, and it is insoluble in alcohol and acetone. It is commonly used to make other ammonium compounds, for uses such as food processing.
