So, what is hydrogénocarbonate sodium?

Sodium hydrogen carbonate, commonly known as baking soda, is a white crystalline powder that is frequently used in baking, cooking, and as a natural cleaning agent. It is chemically composed of sodium, hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen atoms, and is mildly alkaline, with a pH level of 8.1. Baking soda reacts with acids to release carbon dioxide, which causes dough to rise and baked goods to become light and fluffy. In addition to its culinary applications, it can also be used as a leavening agent in fire extinguishers and as a natural remedy for heartburn and indigestion.
