Due to the way the chemicals react in our baking powder it is important that once you add the liquid to the recipe, you must place it in the oven as soon as possible. Read more about this below.
What Makes Honest to Goodness Baking Powder Different?
Originally baking powder was made from baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and creme of tartar (tatric acid), like this one. For the chemists in the kitchen out there, the baking soda is alkaline and the creme of tartar is acidic. When the two are combined and liquid is added a chemical reaction happens, carbon dioxide is made and the product will rise (i.e. acts as a leavening agent). Quite a simple process really. However creme of tartar is quite costly, so the food manufacturing business took it upon themselves to find cheaper, alternative acids to creme of tartar. This is when aluminum-based acid products were investigated and used as alternatives or in addition to traditional baking powder. The aluminum-based acids react with baking soda when heated above 50 degrees celsius and the leavening starts to happen.
You may detect a slightly metallic flavour if you use an aluminium-based baking powder so why not just use the good old original one!
What’s the Difference Between Baking Soda and Baking Powder?
Many baked-good recipes include baking soda or baking powder as a leavening agent. Some may even include both.
While both products appear similar, they’re certainly not the same.
Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, which requires an acid and a liquid to become activated and help baked goods rise.
Conversely, baking powder includes sodium bicarbonate, as well as an acid. It only needs a liquid to become activated.
Substituting one for the other is possible with careful adjustments.
Cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate), sodium bicarbonate, organic white rice flour.
As per your respective recipe.
May be present from processing equipment: gluten, sesame, soy and tree nuts.
Baking Powder Baking powder can be stored in its original packaging in the pantry or a dark and cool cupboard. Just make sure the lid is shut tightly. Storage in a refrigerator or freezer is not recommended. The condensation in the fridge can make the powder react in the can.
