Make A Fluffier Omelette With A Pinch Of Bicarb

Omelettes are fantastic when they're fluffy. How-to illustrator Yumi Sakugawa points to one quick way to add a little more volume to your egg breakfast: add a pinch of bicarb soda.

13 Unexpected Uses for Baking Soda You've Probably Never Heard Of [Secret Tips from the Yumiverse]


    Is bicarb soda the same as baking soda? Methinks this could be bad mistake....

      You might be onto something there Nurlox. A quick google says they are same-same-but-different. My 30 second reading told me that Baking Soda/Powder has a neutral taste in food, whereas Bicarb can leave a bitter taste unless counteracted by something acidic food in the dish such as yoghurt.
