baking soda raises oxalic acid

I just read that using baking soda with rhubarb raises oxalic acid so I think the suggestion is an unhealthy one.

My recipe for

My recipe for Strawberry-Rhubarb pie is similar, but I use only one egg, 1 cup sugar, and I don't use nutmeg. I also use equal parts rhubarb and strawberries, about 2 cups of each. I parboil the rhubarb for one minute in water with a teaspoon of baking soda added. This takes the bitterness out of the rhubarb, and requires less sugar for the recipe. I immediately remove it from heat to avoid it turning soggy. I may try adding the nutmeg next time I make a pie. It would add another dimension to the flavor.

Rhubarb bitterness removal.

Thanks for this tip. I'm going to give it a try.
