So, what is hydrogenocarbonate de sodium?

Hydrogenocarbonate de sodium, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a white crystalline powder with a slightly salty taste. It is commonly used as a leavening agent in baking and cooking, as it reacts with acidic ingredients to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes dough or batter to rise. Sodium bicarbonate is also used in medical applications, such as an antacid to treat heartburn or as an electrolyte replenisher in sports drinks. Its versatility and effectiveness have made it a staple ingredient in many kitchens and medicine cabinets around the world.
