At Bob’s Red Mill, our Baking Soda is the gold standard: use it in countless recipes, including cakes, cookies, flatbread and more. This gluten free product is produced in our 100% gluten free facility and subject to ELISA batch testing to ensure it meets our strict standards. Baking soda is bicarbonate of soda, a top-quality leavening agent also known as sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate. When used in combination with buttermilk, lemon juice, cocoa or other acidic ingredients, it causes dough and batters to rise beautifully without yeast! Our pure baking soda is made from the deposits of mineralized sodium bicarbonate and is extracted by a simple water process that uses no chemicals.
