So, what is διττανθρακικό νάτριο?

"Διττανθρακικό νάτριο" is the Greek term for sodium bicarbonate, a versatile ingredient that is widely used in the food industry. This white crystalline powder has a slightly salty and alkaline taste and is known for its ability to react with acidic substances to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes dough and batters to rise. It is commonly used in baking as a leavening agent, but also finds its way into other food products such as cakes, cookies, and even certain types of vegetables. Sodium bicarbonate is not only a common kitchen ingredient but is also used in medicine as an antacid to relieve heartburn and indigestion.
