So, what is bicarbonate of soda?

Bicarbonate of soda, also known as baking soda, is a versatile ingredient commonly used in cooking and baking. It is a white, crystalline powder with a slightly alkaline taste and a mild, salty flavor. Bicarbonate of soda is a leavening agent, which means it helps baked goods rise by reacting with acidic ingredients in the recipe to produce carbon dioxide gas. This reaction also neutralizes acidic flavors and helps to tenderize tough cuts of meat. Bicarbonate of soda is a must-have ingredient in any baker's pantry, and it's also used in many household cleaning and deodorizing products due to its natural odor-absorbing properties.
