1kg Bicarbonate Of Soda - Bulk Food Ration Storage
This 1kg Bicarbonate Of Soda is an extremely versatile cupboard staple. Not to be confused with baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, or baking soda, is used to raise soda bread and full-flavoured cakes such as gingerbread, fruit cake, chocolate cake and carrot cake. It's about four times as strong as baking powder, and it requires an acid (as well as moisture) to activate it, so it's often combined with cream of tartar, yogurt, buttermilk or milk.
USES: Apart from baking, bicarbonate of soda is an indispensable home essential that boasts a number of very practical uses. Being a mild abrasive, it's great for cleaning; start with the kitchen sink and go from there – ovens, taps, shower stalls and bathtubs are all fair game! According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, it's also good for removing pesticide and chemical residue from fruit and vegetables; just soak them in water and a few teaspoons of baking soda, then rinse them with fresh water. Pop some baking soda in an open container in your fridge to get rid of any unwanted odours. And sprinkle some into your washing machine to give your laundry detergent a deodorising boost.
