Baking soda or Bicarb soda

The other day someone posted they had taken baking soda in water to neutralise the acid in their stomach,I was told it was bicarbonate soda that you should take which is correct

  • Both, I believe, depending on whether you live in UK or USA!

    It is actually Bicarbonate of Soda. BUT Baking Soda is made from Bicarbonate of Soda.



    Will send you pm for store cheapest. I got caugh out last time as I paid 49p more in my usual supermarket.

  • Thanks Mary

  • Please could you tell me where to buy it ?

  • It is bicarbonate of soda. Baking soda is bicarbonate of soda but is mixed with flour

  • Thanks Alan

  • You sure about that Alan? Doesn't usually come mixed with flour?

  • On all the packaging I have seen , flour is one of the ingredients in baking powder.

  • Never seen that. Sorry.

  • Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. It's 50 cents to $1 a box. Make sure you mix it well with water or it can make you sick.

  • Thanks Leigh
