Ammonium Carbonate FCC Food Grade
INS: 503(i); CAS: [10361-29-2]
Ammonium Carbonate occurs as a white powder or as hard, white or translucent masses. It consists of ammonium bicarbonate (NH4HCO3) and ammonium carbamate (NH2·COONH4) in varying proportions. On exposure to air it becomes opaque and is finally converted into porous lumps or a white powder of ammonium bicarbonate because of the loss of ammonia and carbon dioxide. One gram dissolves slowly in about 4 mL of water. Its solutions are alkaline to litmus.
Function: Buffer; leavening agent; neutralizing agent.
Identification: When heated, a sample volatilizes without charring, and the vapor is alkaline to moistened litmus paper. A 1:20 aqueous solution effervesces when an acid is added.
Assay: Not less than 30.0% and not more than 34.0% of NH3.
Chloride: Not more than 0.003%.
Lead: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Nonvolatile Residue: Not more than 0.05%.
Sulfur Compounds (as SO4): Not more than 0.005%.
