Ammonia Powder (Ziyad) 1 oz
Ammonia Powder (Ziyad) 1 oz.
Many Greek recipes call for "ammonia" (ah-moh-NEE-yah), especially cookies, bread sticks, and crackers. This is a powdered form of ammonia used as a leavening agent. Ammonia powder is a leavening agent that is ground to a powder for baking purposes. Primarily, it is used for baking cookies and puff pastries. During baking it will give off an aroma that will quickly disappear. The advantages to using this instead of another leavener (baking soda or powder) are: it is heat activated, so it won't start to rise until whatever is being made goes into the oven, allowing for time to prepare without dealing with rising dough; it produces a fabulous crispness that isn't duplicated with another leavening agent.
Ingredient: ammonia bicarbonate.
