What’s the deal with aluminum in Baking Soda?

Posted: December 23, 2010 in Non-toxic personal care products

I’ve received quite a few questions asking about baking soda and what brands are safe to use and are free from aluminum.  The majority of baking soda on the market today is aluminum free (this was not the case many years ago), however the only way you can be certain about the brand you are using is by calling the manufacturer and asking.  The Bob’s Red Mills brand is obviously aluminum free since it is stated on the package.  Also, a lot of baking soda on the market today is synthetic or man made through a chemical reaction, whereas Bob’s Red Mill is simply naturally occurring Sodium bicarbonate.  Finally, their products are  cruelty free, unlike one of the major manufacturers of baking soda on the market today.  Don’t forget to enter the Bob’s Red Mill Baking Soda giveaway by simply commenting on my post below.
