Baking powder

baking powder

Baking powder is made from a mixture of baking soda and two acids. Cornstarch is also added to give it stability and to improve the consistency.

One of the acids called monocalcium phosphate does not react with the baking soda while it is dry. But as soon as the baking powder is mixed into a wet dough the two ingredients begin to react. The other acid, sodium acid pyrophosphate reacts when it is combined with liquid and again when it is combined with heat.

Baking powder is used in baking to increase the volume and texture of baked goods. It is also used in quick bread instead of yeast.

Baking powder must be kept in a airtight container and in a dark place. Moisture and heat can affect the effectiveness over time. To test its effectiveness, put a teaspoon of baking powder in a small container of hot water. If it bubbles vigorously the baking powder is still good to use.

Baking powder was discovered in 1843 by Alfred Bird, a English food manufacturer.
