Bicarbonate of soda (bicarb soda) is an alkali substance that reacts with liquid acids. Bicarb soda will often give foods a 'bubbly' texture, or an extra rising boost to denser goods (think soda bread or banana bread).

Sometimes a recipe will call for both, and that is usually because they each serve two different purposes in the cooking.
