Sodium Bicarbonate

A versatile chemical compound with many applications across industry, sodium bicarbonate is also a food additive with the E number E500.


Sodium bicarbonate can buffer, neutralise and act as a source of CO2. It has uses across water treatment, oil and gas, pulp and paper processing, soda blasting and many more.

In food and drink production, sodium bicarbonate is used chiefly as a leavening agent. When it reacts with acid, carbon dioxide is released, causing expansion of doughs and batters.

In its white crystalline solid form, it is often referred to as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda and bicarbonate of soda. Our sodium bicarbonate is supplied as a colourless liquid in a range of bulk sizes.
