Salt Skip Potassium Bicarbonate 200g
NOT FOR MEDICINAL USE – Not suitable for people with kidney failure or while under treatment with potassium-sparing diuretics
Use in recipes instead of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
Note: Sodium bicarbonate is a pure leavening (rising) agent. It needs to be mixed with moisture and an acidic ingredient for the necessary chemical reaction to take place to make food rise. Because it needs an acid to create the rising quality, it is often used in recipes where there is already an acidic ingredient present, such as lemon juice, chocolate, buttermilk or honey. Potassium bicarbonate can be used instead for those needing to lower their sodium (salt) intake.
