$7.98

Shipping to United States: $2.00

Our sodium free baking soda substitute uses potassium bicarbonate rather than sodium bicarbonate to get a rise out of your baked goods without all the sodium*. This packet contains 3 ounces (about 15 teaspoons) of sodium free baking soda.

You can also use our sodium free baking soda as a baking powder replacement! Simply half the amount called for and add an acidic ingredient like citric acid, lemon juice, vinegar, yogurt or buttermilk to react with it to help your baked goods rise.

Common questions about low sodium baking:

Q: Is there a lot of sodium in baking soda?
A: There sure is! One teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate baking soda adds a whopping 1259 milligrams of sodium to your baked goods! Potassium bicarbonate baking soda substitute, on the other hand, adds absolutely none*.

Q: Is there a low sodium version of baking soda?
A: Yes! Potassium bicarbonate makes baked goods rise just as well as sodium bicarbonate but without all the sodium*. Our sodium free baking soda is made with potassium bicarbonate instead of sodium bicarbonate, eliminating a significant amount of sodium from your baked goods!

Q: Is baking soda bad for blood pressure?
A: It can be if you need to watch your sodium intake. That is why we offer this potassium bicarbonate alternative to baking soda (though it may not be suitable for people who also need to monitor their potassium intake--see below)

Q: How do you reduce sodium in baking?
A: Switching from regular baking soda to a low sodium baking soda is the best way, in addition to simply eliminating salt from your recipes. You will find that most baked goods (especially sweet items like cookies, muffins, brownies etc.) don't even need the added salt to taste great. And switching from regular baking soda to a sodium-free baking soda alternative eliminates hundreds--even thousands!--of milligrams of sodium from your recipes!


*Potassium bicarbonate adds 2210 mg of potassium per teaspoon, so may not be an option for people who have to watch their potassium intake.
