So, what is bicarbonato sodico?

Bicarbonato sodico, also known as sodium bicarbonate or baking soda, is a white crystalline powder that has a slightly salty and alkaline taste. It's commonly used as a leavening agent in baking since it reacts with acidic ingredients to produce carbon dioxide, which causes dough or batter to rise. Besides its culinary applications, bicarbonato sodico has various uses such as cleaning, deodorizing, and personal hygiene. It's considered safe to consume in small amounts, but excessive intake may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. This versatile ingredient is a staple in many households and a must-have for any avid baker.
