Sodium Bicarbonate

A multi-use chemical compound with chemical formula NaHCO3, sodium bicarbonate is also a food additive with the E number E500. It is commonly known as baking soda and not to be confused with sodium carbonate.


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

Across industry, 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, cleaning, cooking, cattle feed supplements, fire extinguisher manufacture and pyrotechnics.

With 50 years’ experience and our own privately-owned distribution fleet, we are leading bulk sodium bicarbonate suppliers and are perfectly placed to meet any requirement.
