CO2 with baking soda

Bob and Chlayne were discussing 
the proper DIY recipe for CO2 production.
The recipe I've been using comes from Jim Kelly's article
"Great aquarium plants, real cheap"
It called for 2 cups of sugar and 1/4 tsp yeast.
I've been using this for a little over a year now
with decent results,(not phenomenal-probably because my tanks lack 
the additions of proper minerals)but good enough overall.
Baking soda was not mentioned.
Should I be adding baking soda as well?
Does this simply act as a catalyst?
Just curious
