Judith answered my question with:
<<< The very basic requirement for Passover is "no leavening." This  
refers to anything involving yeast: bread, Marmite and Vegemite, beer  
(fermented grain), grain whiskey -- in short, NOTHING involving any of  
the Five Grains: oat, barley, spelt, rye, or wheat, unless it is  
sh'murah (watched, guarded) from the moment of harvest to the moment  
of baking, so that one knows for certain that there has been no  
moisture introduced to the grain.>>>

So what do the rules say about using baking soda or baking powder? ie:  
chemical leavening agents. Those aren't yeast driven.
