aluminum sodium sulfate, also known as soda alum, is an odorless, colorless crystalline solid that is soluble in water at ambient temperatures. It is produced by adding a clear solution of sodium sulfate to a solution of aluminium sulfate.

Leavening agent: Sodium aluminum sulfate is used as a leavening agent to increase the rise of baked goods. It can be used alone or in combination with another leavening agent such as monocalcium phosphate.

Sodium aluminum sulfate is an acid that reacts with other ingredients in baking powders and processed cheeses to provide the chemical reaction needed for them to rise. It is typically used in industrial baking for products like cookies, muffins, crackers, and waffles as well as processed cheeses to create a smooth, soft texture with easy melting and slicing characteristics.

It is also a mordant for textile dyeing, paper sizing, and filler in ceramics, inks, and paints. It is also used as a coagulating agent in municipal and industrial water treatment, and in sewage treatment.

The chemical is classified as hazardous under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). When it is stored, aluminum sodium sulfate should have a hazardous chemical label. It should be placed in a cool, dry area away from other chemicals and substances and cleaned up promptly after use.

Sodium aluminum sulfate may cause eye, nose, throat, skin, and lung irritation. If contacted, the eyes should be flushed with water for several minutes. Contact with skin can produce burning, itching, and redness. It is important to seek medical attention if any of these symptoms are experienced.
