So, what is carbonates de sodium?

Sodium carbonates, commonly known as washing soda, are a white, odorless, and water-soluble powder derived from the mineral trona or soda ash. They are often used as a leavening agent in baking or as a cleaning agent due to their alkaline properties. Sodium carbonates can also be found in some personal care products and are used to balance pH levels in water. While they are generally safe to consume in small amounts, excessive consumption can lead to gastrointestinal discomfort. As with any food ingredient, it's important to use sodium carbonates in moderation and follow recommended guidelines.
