Many people are still contacting us about purchasing sodium carbonate powder.
It is very easy to make your own at home when you require it. Use the Harold McGee method, it works every time. Add the sodium bicarbonate powder to your cart along with the potassium carbonate powder.

Take the Sodium Bicarbonate and spread evenly over a foil covered baking tray. Bake this at 135 degrees C for approximately an hour. This heat converts the sodium bicarbonate powder into carbonate powder, removes the CO2 and water. Remember to always keep the sodium carbonate powder well sealed in an air tight jar. If exposed to air the powder will adsorb moisture and revert to Sodium Bicarbonate. As with any alkaline powders care needs to be taken to avoid skin and eye contact.

Once you have made your sodium carbonate powder an excellent starting point to make Kansu is 80:20. This is 80 parts Sodium Carbonate to 20 parts Potassium Carbonate Powder. If you do not purchase your ingredients through us, please make sure that the powders you are using are food grade or higher.


Product Certificates
To obtain a product certificate please select this option at time of purchase as discounts apply. The certificate will be posted in the file section of your account dashboard as a PDF file. You will require Adobe Acrobat to open and read this file, this can be downloaded from the Adobe website. Requests for certificates after delivery will attract an additional fee. 

Why do we charge for this paperwork?
The majority of our customers do not require this paperwork so we are able to pass on the savings. The cost of supplying this paperwork for a $10 product outstrips the product price. Compliance is a major cost to our company and if you require this then its only fair you share the cost. These fees can get quite high for example with all the information required for Organic Certification. See below on how to avoid the fees.

Don't want to pay for a certificate?
Then please purchase a box quantity of the product. This varies depending on the product but is usually a 25Kg container.
