What is baking soda made out of?

    Good question, bemodal.  Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate.  It is used in baking because when it comes into contact with an acid (vinegar, citrus juice,buttermilk, etc.) it creates carbon dioxide which helps the dough rise.

    Hope this helps!

    Baking soda is a common household item that is used for cleaning, baking, deodorizing, and even personal care!  The main ingredient in baking soda is sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3).  Baking soda is sometimes used to neutralize acids which is how it takes away odors.
