Lotus Bi-Carb Soda is used as a leavening agent in cooking and baking. It neutralises the acids in recipes when mixed with acid and moisture to achieve a chemical reaction to make food rise. It is often used in cakes, breads, muffins and pizza bases. It is also an effective deodoriser and alternative to chemical household cleaning products. Lotus Bi-Carb Soda is sourced from China and packed in Australia. It comes in a re-sealable oxygen barrier pack to preserve its freshness.
