Sodium carbonate

Sodium carbonate, also known as soda ash or washing soda, is a white, odorless powder that is commonly used in various industrial and household applications. It is a water-soluble salt that is composed of sodium, carbon, and oxygen atoms.

Sodium carbonate has a wide range of uses, including as a water softener, a pH adjuster, a cleaning agent, and a flux in the glass industry. It is also used in the manufacturing of paper, detergents, and textiles.

In food, sodium carbonate is sometimes used as a food additive, typically as a raising agent in baked goods. It reacts with acidic ingredients in the dough to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes the dough to rise and creates a lighter texture.
