Bicarbonate of Soda Day


30 December

The plainer name for Bicarbonate of Soda Day is really just "baking soda day", but though sadly that doesn't have the same cachet, does it?

To mark the day, you could bake something that uses baking soda. Or, just think of today as a good day to replace the box of deodorizing baking soda in your fridge, in time for the New Year.

However, given that baking soda is a time-honoured remedy for indigestion, it might be around this time of year that you are reaching for a glass of water with some baking soda in it anyway to settle your stomach. It actually does work, by acting as an antacid and neutralizing excess stomach acid, though it's not recommended for young children. The jury is still out on what it actually does, if anything, for your fridge.

Some feel that Bicarbonate of Soda Day, in fact, really ought to be the 1st of January, though you could think of today as the day to make sure you have some in the house.

Do you know the difference between Soda Water, Club Soda, Seltzer Water and Carbonated Water? And what does the word "Soda" mean on its own in parts of North America? CooksInfo.com has the answers.
