Baking soda (NaHCO3).

When it reacts with water (H2O) it produce CO2 gas and Na2CO3 (sodium carbonate or washing soda). CO2 gas thus produced make the food stuff soft and spongy as happened in bread and other bakery products hence name given Baking soda.

Another thing is baking powder which is a mixture of baking soda and tartaric acid.

Use of tartaric acid is to neutralize the basic sodium carbonate or washing soda produced when baking soda reacts with water and thus sour taste of sodium carbonate is masked.
