Can I substitute baking soda for baking powder? (Baking Powder is SCD Illegal)

“Yes, as long as there is enough of an acidic ingredient to make a reaction (for 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, you need 1 cup of buttermilk or yogurt or 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar). And remember that baking soda has 4 times the power of baking powder, so 1/4 teaspoon soda is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of baking powder. You can make your own baking powder at home: Sift 1/4 cup cream of tartar and 2 tablespoons baking soda through a fine strainer 3 times into a small bowl. Store airtight at room temperature.” – NonAppetit
