NaturesFirst Gluten Free Baking Powder - 125gm
Baking powder is a dry chemical leavening agent traditionally made up of three ingredients including baking soda (or bi-carb soda), cream of tartar and white rice flour. The base and acid are prevented from reacting prematurely by the inclusion of a buffer – rice flour. By its nature, baking powder is gluten-free because it doesn't have wheat, rye, barley, or triticale, the four types of grains that contain the protein. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods Used in baked goods such as cakes, muffins, and bread, it creates a light, fluffy texture while increasing the volume of the mixture.
Baking Powder vs Soda Both baking soda and baking powder are leavening agents, which means they are added to baked goods before cooking to produce carbon dioxide and cause them to rise. Baking powder contains baking soda, but the two substances are used under different conditions.
