Sodium Bicarbonate also called Soda Ash was first produced in 1791 by a French chemist Nicolas Leblanc. In 1843 Alfred Bird refined Soda Ash to and makes the first version of baking powder. In 1846 Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight both New Englanders made a product that would become a household name, Bicarbonate of Soda and later became ARM & HAMER™ Baking Soda.
