I was dubious about this product, but traditional baking soda has just too much sodium. So far, though, the Ener-G baking soda has worked very well. I've used it in an Irish soda bread and two cakes (a chocolate and a yellow). The results have been very good, and I don't notice a significant flavor difference between baked goods made with this and those made with traditional baking soda.
Be aware that you need to DOUBLE the amount of Ener-G baking soda that you use ... which brings me to the only real downside of this product: it's very expensive compared to normal baking soda. Otherwise, though, it's great.
