Ammonium Bicarbonate, CAS# 1066-33-7, is a inorganic compound manufactured through chemical synthesis, available as White crystals or crystalline powder. Ammonium Bicarbonate is widely used as raising agent as it produces more gas than sodium bicarbonate without leaving any salty or soapy taste. It is affirmed by US FDA as GRAS(generally recognized as safe) and widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries with E number E503.
No significant side effects reported.
As Ammonium Bicarbonate is widely known as safe, there is no limit on dosage of intake. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Ammonium Bicarbonate for long period.
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Ammonium Bicarbonate could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Ammonium Bicarbonate in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Ammonium Bicarbonate for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Ammonium Bicarbonate is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
No breaking news or public health crises reported about Ammonium Bicarbonate reported up to now.
