Similar to other chemical leaveners, it is typically used in baked products that do not require yeasts such as cakes, cookies, muffins, and cupcakes. A daily dose of baking soda may help reduce the destructive inflammation of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, a study has found for the first time. Commercially, baking soda can be found in different particle sizes. It ranges from 70 to 160 microns i.e. from fine powder to granular.
