Three MOST COMMON Leavening Agents


Baking Soda

Chemical changeBaking soda, or bicarbonate of sodaUsed when the dough or batter contains an acidic ingredient, like buttermilk, lemon, brown sugar, sour cream, or yogurt. The soda (base) combines with the buttermilk (acid), to produce carbon dioxide & the baked goods rise.


Baking Powder

Chemical changeUsed in cookies, quick breads & other baked goods Made of baking soda & cream of tartar Generally double action - means it releases carbon dioxide when mixed with liquid & when exposed to heat



Chemical changeFungusSlow processConverts small amounts of sugars in the dough to carbon dioxide & alcohol – fermentationCarbon dioxide trapped in the dough makes it riseAlcohol evaporates in the oven



Physical changeWater changes to steam to create small bubbles which cause the baking products to rise
