Naturally Harvested (Aluminium Free) Food and USP Grade Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda). Few suppliers of Sodium Bicarb could boast that their product is of Natural origin, and fewer still could lay claim to a Natural Sodium Bicarb that is also Organic, but BLANTs can! Our Bicarb is recognised as Organic in the USA by a leading USA and Canadian Organic Certifier!
From generation to generation Sodium Bicarbonate has earned a reputation as an absolute necessity in many a household. Affectionately known as Bicarb of Soda, or baking soda, and it is accepted as a safe, versatile, environmental friendly all-round household product with a multitude of uses ! BLANTs Organic Natural Sodium Bicarbonate, which is 'Aluminium Free' USP & Food Grade, is THE very best in Australia ! Much of the available Bicarb is a man-made product, not Natural and certainly not Organic! You can also combine sodium bicarb in the bath with magnesium.
It is harvested from deep underground ancient mineral deposit of Naturally occurring Sodium Carbonate & Bicarbonate. The mix is brought to the surface where a simple filtering, refining and curing process produces a premium Food & USP Grade Aluminium Free Sodium Bicarbonate. Isn't that refreshing to know !

BLANTs Organic Super-Natural Sodium Bicarb is sourced from the same region that the popular and ultra expensive non-organic BRM Bicarb is sourced without the extravagant price tag
Sodium bicarbonate is a secondary product of Soda Ash, derived from natural deposits or man-made.
The natural deposits are called Trona and are reported to be ancient mineral deposits in the Green River, Wyoming region 450km below the surface that was once covered by an enormous lake As the lake evaporated it left behind a deposit of Trona between sandstone and shale said to be so large it could provide the world for thousands years.
The Trona Ore is brought to the surface, refined into slurry containing both Soda Ash and Sodium Bicarbonate. The crystals and liquid are separated in a centrifuge. The crystals are then dissolved in a bicarbonate solution and then filtered to remove any non-soluble material. Purified carbon dioxide is fed into the filtered solution with the resulting reaction forming Sodium Bicarbonate. The Sodium Bicarbonate is held in holding bins where it cures, then packaged and shipped.
There you have it, a simple production from nature to package !
