Baking Soda

Other names: sodium hydrogen carbonate

Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate or bicarbonate of soda. Baking soda is used as a leavening agent. Baking soda must come in contact with an acid in order to form carbon dioxide gas which in turns makes the baked product rise. Typical acids include vinegar, citrus juice, sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk.
