Frequently Asked Questions:
Why do you add baking soda to the water?
Adding the baking soda to the boiled water essentially gelatinizes the outside of the pretzel. This stops the pretzel from fully springing when being baked and gives it the chewy crust and soft inside.

As you know, all food is healthy in moderation, so yes of course! Food is meant to be enjoyed not demonized.
