Other Uses

Quality Bicarbonates for a Variety of Food Products

ARM & HAMMER™ food grade bicarbonate products offer uses in addition to leavening, from  aesthetic enhancements to additional applications. For example, Flow K™ potassium bicarbonate enhances browning and highlights the toasted and grainy flavor notes of certain recipes. It is also an effective effervescent for drink mixes, and has been observed to enhance sweetening. Another example is ammonium bicarbonate’s usefulness as a processing aid, as it increases dough pH to effect browning; and later returns pH to neutral at the end of the baking process.
