Is sodium bicarbonate and bicarbonate of soda the same thing?They aren't all interchangeable! - by that's life! In short, bicarbonate of soda, sodium bicarbonate, bicarb soda and baking soda are different names for the same thing. In Australia and the UK it’s called bicarbonate of soda, but in the US it’s known as baking soda.
