I found a recipe for homemade ramen noodles that calls for 'baked baking soda'. Based on some research, baking sodium bicarbonate will convert it to sodium carbonate. Na2CO3 is more basic than NaHCO3 and apparently basic water is good for chewy noodles.
Sodium carbonate is also known as washing soda. Can I use store-bought washing soda instead of making my own baked baking soda?
