Difference types of rising agents (levures)
It's so confusing sometimes. Good to have a summary here:
|Levure chimique||Baking powder||Bagepulver|
|Bicarbonate de soude||Baking soda||Natron|
- Baking soda is a baking ingredient that's activated by a liquid and an acid to help with leavening, or rising
- Baking powder is a complete leavening agent, meaning it contains both baking soda and an acidic ingredient (such as cream of tartar -- crème de tartare i.e. hydrogénotartrate de potassium). It also sometimes contains some corn starch (amidon de maïs) to preserve the powder over time.
Baking soda is 3 to 4 times stronger than baking powder.
- Yeast on contrary to the two previous ones, is living matter.
