Happy Bicarbonate of Soda Day! Sodium bicarbonate is an extraordinary, naturally occurring substance that is very versatile with uses from baking, cleaning and health treatments. It is currently one of the most commonly found chemical compounds in households worldwide with its use dating back to the time of the ancient Egyptians who used it for painting.

The compound’s scientific name is sodium hydrogen carbonate with its natural mineral form called nahcolite. Some of the more common names are baking soda, cooking soda, bread soda and bicarb. It is now used in a number of industries including cooking, pest control, paint and corrosion removal, disinfectant and cleaning, personal hygiene and health, fire protection, animal nutrition and more.

Sodium bicarbonate is made from sodium carbonate, or soda ash, as a by-product. To form Sodium bicarbonate, the soda ash is dissolved into a solution through which carbon dioxide is bubbled, and sodium bicarbonate precipitates out.

Redox has had a long term relationship with Natural Soda, a United States based company, sourcing pure and natural-occurring sodium bicarbonate from the largest known nahcolite deposits in the world. For customers and distributors, this means the recovered nahcolite guarantees you a pure and reliable source of natural sodium bicarbonate.
