Buttermilk Bread?

I was considering trying to bake bread using buttermilk instead of regular milk. I found this recipe:

Clayton's Buttermilk Whole Wheat Bread | The Fresh Loaf

I noticed that they have baking powder in the recipe. What is the purpose of the baking powder if you are using active yeast? I assume it has something to do with the acid in the buttermilk.
I had seen another recipe that used vinegar in addition to buttermilk (again, active yeast bread). That sounds like adding more acid, though, what does that do?

I dont see the reason for using baking soda and yeast. I use either one or the other.

OK, I think I'll try a loaf without the soda and see what happens.

nice looking recipe......I would follow the recipe as written...looks to be written by someone who knows bread making...I have seen recipes that call for both yeast and baking powder or soda. This recipe calls for baking powder, not soda.
