Clarification: Calcium Carbonate

We ve had some questions from readers regarding the use ofthe term calcium carbonate, which is listed as aningredient in a number of the diets found in this book, andtherefore wanted to clarify what is meant by this ingredient.Baking soda comes in two forms: sodium bicarbonate and calciumcarbonate. The sodium bicarbonate version is widely available as baking soda and is commonly used in baking, but noneof the recipes in this book use it as an ingredient. Thecalcium carbonate version of baking soda is sometimes sold as baking soda substitute and sometimes referred to assimply baking soda.

To avoid confusing sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, anytime the calcium carbonate type of baking soda has been used in adiet in this book, the ingredient includes the specific term calcium carbonate. There are severalmanufacturers of calcium carbonate baking soda; for example, Amazoncarries the Ener-G Foods product baking soda substitute. Calciumcarbonate can also be sold for garden use, which is non-food-grade,so to avoid the use of the garden product in foods, the term baking soda was used in this book instead to indicatethat readers should be sure to select a food-appropriateingredient.
