Default Chemical Reaction of Baking Soda?

We made pumpkin bread for the teachers for Christmas but forgot to add the baking soda to the recipe. The results, besides being disastrous, were very interesting. I want to do a science fair project on the chemical reaction of baking soda. Why is the bread without soda lighter in color and more dense than the bread with soda? Any help?

Well I'm actually doing a science project on that now And I fond your question and thought I'd help you out. We don't know each other.
Baking powder and baking soda are oxidents. in other words, they produce gasses. when you forgot to add the baking powder (or was it soda?) to your mix, you were leavin out the thing that makes all the bubbles. it's symallar to yeast. the bubbles make everything rise. without bubble you have a pumpkin flavored pancake. And since it was denser the color probobly got darker.

That's all I got.
