I did a quick online search and saw the red cabbage juice is an indicator that can be used to tell if something is acid or base. Baking Soda is definitely a base and not an acid, so the cabbage juice will turn blue. It turns pink in an acid, like vinegar. You can test it yourself at home with things you probably already have around your house.
