Is Baking Powder Gluten-Free - No Not All Are

Post  justmecookin on Sun Mar 23, 2014 11:18 am

Some brands put wheat/wheat starch...always read the ingredients.

Homemade Baking Powder

1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon corn starch (optional)

Mix the baking soda and cream of tartar together until well combined. Use immediately. Makes 1 tablespoon of baking powder.

To store baking powder: Add a teaspoon of corn starch to the mixture, and stir. This will absorb any moisture from the air, and prevent the baking powder from reacting before you need it. Store in an air-tight container.

Did You Know? Most commerically-produced baking powder contains aluminum--sodium aluminum sulfate to be exact. Make your own baking powder, and keep your baked goods aluminum-free.
