Re: Baking soda, baking powder

This may be a little off topic, but can anybody tell me where I can find sodawater? I have a huge Migros & COOP beside my house, as well as a biggish Denner and I haven't been able to find it in any of those... I might be being a bit blind, but I really want it so I have looked quite carefully.

If anyone can let me know where I'd find it, or if it's under my nose just with a crazy name, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks!

Re: Baking soda, baking powder

The "old fashioned" way was to have one of these (I'm sure an equivalent can still be found), fill it with water and give it a shot of CO2 from a single dose cartridge cylinder (readily available) - I always remember my father doing this.

If I ever need soda water, I just use ordinary fizzy bottled water - heathen that I am (isn't that what it is, anyway - which is maybe why you're having trouble finding it).

You can still get those and the little cartridges, but the easiest thing to do is get a SodaStream or SodaClub with the big cylinder. Available pretty much any place that sells groceries, and many places that don't.

Re: Baking soda, baking powder

Just wanted to say that the grocery store in Jelmoli (near Bahnhofstrasse) sells 100g jars of both the Heritage brand "Bicarbonate of Soda" (baking soda) and Baking Powder, which are made in the UK. I've used both of these in recipes and they seem to work perfectly fine.

Side note -- Jelmoli also sells Billington's muscavado brown sugar (light or dark), which is the brown sugar that is used for baking in the US and in the UK as well as a lot of other items from the UK (custard powder, etc.).

Re: Baking soda, baking powder

In case anyone needs to use one rather than the other (you only have one product), there is a ratio to follow to make things work. This video gives the details as well as showing you how to check if the baking soda/baking powder is fresh.

Re: Baking soda, baking powder

To substitute, use three times the amount of baking powder you would for a portion of baking soda e.g. for 1 tsp of baking soda (about 5g), use 3 tsps of baking powder (15g). The baking powder is sold in packs of 15g, so it is equivalent to a tsp of baking soda.

I also use baking powder to clean costume jewelry :-)
