Certified Organic by OMRIWhat makes Genesis Alkali sodium bicarbonate different?  Made in the U.S.A., Genesis baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate.  It is the basic component in virtually all leavening processes used in your favorite baked goods.  Cakes, doughnuts, muffins, biscuits, cookies, pancakes, waffles, baking mixes, and frozen doughs all use sodium bicarbonate.  Baking soda reacts with acids to release carbon dioxide gas in the form of bubbles within the dough.  The CO2 expands the dough during mixing and baking to provide increased volume and a pleasing texture to the baked goods.

Baking soda also acts to buffer the dough, allowing the other ingredients of the mix to react properly. Sodium bicarbonate is also used as a leavening system in candies and in dry beverage mixes to create CO2 when the desired liquid is added.

Genesis Alkali baking soda is natural, and is allowed for use in certified organic operations under the USDA National Organic Program.  Genesis Alkali mines naturally occurring trona ore and processes it to make a ≥99% pure sodium bicarbonate.  No preservatives, flavorings, colors, or vitamins are added to the product.  So if your company offers, or is considering offering, premium product lines promoting natural or ‘Made with Organic’ designations, Genesis sodium bicarbonate can help you meet your requirements, without a premium price.
