This food grade Bicarb (also commonly known as Sodium Bicarbonate, baking soda, or Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate) is a premium powder widely used as a leavening agent, aerator or alkali in recipes. Bicarb soda has a saline, slightly alkaline taste and no aroma. Use it in breads and cakes to help them rise.
How to Use:
Bicarb can be used on its own as directed in recipes. It is very popular as an integral ingredient in traditional soda bread and cakes. Or mix your own ‘baking powder’, the ingredient used to make Self Raising flour from Plain flour.
Combine ½ tsp. of Cream of Tartar with ¼ tsp. of Bicarb (2:1), and (optional) ¼ tsp. of corn starch.
This is equivalent to 1 tsp. of Baking Powder in recipes and can be added to 110 grams of Plain flour to make Self Raising flour. Because Bicarb starts to react in recipes as soon as moisture is added, be sure to bake batter immediately and place in oven as quickly as possible.
Bicarb soda is also used as a natural household deodorant, to sprinkle on fresh stains in carpets or with vinegar as a cleaner.
Store in an airtight container in a cool (<15o C), dry place, away from direct sunlight.
Up to 12 months when stored as above. See Best Before date.
