Baking soda can be used in the distilled water to form an electrolyte.

Perhaps what you read was to use baking soda to neutralize the effects of lemon juice being used as an electrolyte in an electrolysis setup? Lemon juice is acidic, baking soda is alkaline. After an object is taken out of lemon juice, baking soda can be used to neutralize the acidic effects.

BTW, I'm not an expert on the subject either.
