    Course

    • POTASSIUM CARBONATE – Known as a buffering agent, it’s a weak acid (or base) used to maintain the acidity in foods, like baked goods, soft drinks, confectionary, custard powder, mead, and even wine.
    • WHAT IS IT – Potassium Carbonate is a white salt that is soluble in water. It creates a strong alkaline solution for use in baking and cooking. Found in foods like Chinese mooncakes, German gingerbread, and light and crisp springerle cookies.
    • COCOA POWDER – Potassium Carbonate is essential in the process of dutching cocoa powder. It balances the acidity and enhances the aroma. Chocolate is naturally slightly acidic, and so is cocoa powder. Treating the cocoa with an alkalizing agent neutralizes the acid.
    • TRADITIONAL USES – It is a key ingredient in the production of grass jelly, a food consumed in Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines, as well as hand pulled noodles. It’s also used as an animal feed additive to satisfy the potassium requirements of farmed animals.
