So, what is bicarbonate de sodium?

Bicarbonate de sodium, also known as baking soda, is a fine white powder with a slightly salty and alkaline taste. It is a versatile ingredient commonly used in baking as a leavening agent, where it reacts with acid to produce carbon dioxide gas and help dough or batter rise. Beyond baking, bicarbonate de sodium has numerous household uses, such as cleaning and deodorizing surfaces, neutralizing acids in food, and even as a toothpaste ingredient due to its mild abrasive properties. It is a staple in many kitchens and a popular alternative to chemical leavening agents.
