Sodium Diacetate has a vinegary flavour due to the additional mole of acetic acid. The success of vinegar chips, a popular snack item inspired by malt vinegar fish ‘n’ chips, can be attributed to this unique zesty flavour. Sodium diacetate, often known as imitation dry vinegar, is a flavouring agent used in spices, meals, sauces, and ketchup. Sodium Diacetate is used by industrial bread and coatings makers to provide highly spicy breading for fast food fish and poultry.

You can produce sodium diacetate at home using only common kitchen materials. It is easy and affordable to create, requiring only vinegar, baking soda, and a few dishes. There is no need for any special measuring equipment. You can pretty much do anything by eye.

Material You Will Need:

  • Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)
  • Vinegar (acetic acid)
  • Ceramic containers or glasses which are microwavable
  • Coffee filters
  • Properly shaped spoon


Preparation Method:

Baking soda and vinegar are two common household ingredients that can be used by Sodium diacetate manufacturer to make sodium diacetate. Wear safety goggles before beginning this preparation because the splashing of liquids into your eyes can be annoying.

Here are the basic steps to follow:

  • Add one tablespoon of baking soda to a glass container to start the process. Slowly drizzle in the vinegar, taking care not to make too much foam. While stirring the mixture, keep adding vinegar.
  • You can stop adding vinegar once the liquid stops bubbling since all sodium bicarbonate has changed to sodium diacetate, which is carbon dioxide.
  • Boil the solution until it sizzles and pops, which will separate the sodium diacetate. from the water. If you blow across the top of the surface at this moment, crystals will develop. Cool this solution of super-saturated sodium diacetate. to room temperature; it will solidify as a gleaming gel.
  • Pour the gel into a basin fitted with a coffee filter to absorb any excess liquid. With the back of a spoon, break up the pieces and place them on another coffee filter to finish the drying process, resulting in sodium diacetate. powder.

Once all these steps are done, you will pretty much be done. Th only thing to note is that, the powder might have a little moisture, but it will be minimal and you don’t have to worry about it.
