What is food-grade ammonium sulfate

Food-grade ammonium sulfate — also known as ammonium tetraoxosulfate, diammonium sulfate, mascagnite and actamaster — is an ammonium compound and inorganic salt most commonly known for its use as a fertilizer in highly alkaline soils.

Ammonium sulfate has numerous applications in the food industry, including using its nitrogen content to help the baking industry regulate acidity in breads, flours and doughs. In addition, it is used in making casings for sausages.

In the beverage industry, food-grade ammonium sulfate is used in the production of sparkling wines and, more recently, in the brewing of low carbohydrate beers.
