Sodium Bicarbonate

Sodium bicarbonate, more commonly known as baking soda, is a natural chemical compound that causes fermentation and is used in cooking as a rising agent.

Baking soda’s leavening action is triggered by moisture which is why it is used with “wet” ingredients such as yogurt, milk, and honey, while baking powder, which has the same effect, is used with dry ingredients like flour.

Baking soda is also used in preparing white beans or pulses and green vegetables as it delays their discoloration.
