Fort Lauderdale Personal Chef - Yeast Or Not To Yeast...how to substitute yeastBaking soda is also used as a leavening agent in some bread products. However, it operates differently than yeast and may not always be suitable as a substitute. However, here is how baking soda differs from yeast and how to substitute it.

Baking soda doesn’t make bread rise in the same fashion as yeast. Baking soda needs to react to an acid to cause carbon dioxide bubbles to make the bread rise. It is often called for in recipes that have a naturally acidic batter for the baking soda to react in. If your recipe calls for yeast and not baking soda, then it generally does not have the required acid for the baking soda to react in.
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use baking soda as a substitute. If you want to use baking soda as a substitute for yeast, you’ll need to add an acid to the mix. Generally this is done by adding equal parts baking soda and lemon juice to equal the amount of yeast called for in the recipe. You can also use buttermilk in place of lemon juice or a mixture of milk and vinegar.
Alternatively you can use baking powder, which is a combination of baking soda and an acid. If you use baking powder as a yeast substitute, make sure to use double-acting baking powder. This type of baking powder contains two acids allowing the baking soda to react twice, once when it becomes wet and again when heated.

The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die
