Overview: What is Baking Powder?
Baking Powder is a commonly used leavening agent used in a range of bakery products. It is usually manufactured by blending an acid, a base, and a buffer to prevent premature reactions. It is sold as a white to off-white powder and is used to add volume and lighten baked goods' texture by adding carbon dioxide to the mixture.
Baking Powder is a combination of Sodium Bicarbonate, Mono Calcium Phosphate alongside either Cream of Tartar, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (SAPP) & Tartaric Acid for the reactive side. As well as these critical ingredients, Starches are a buffering aid, moisture absorbent and flow-aid to help maintain product stability over its shelf life. The most common starch used is corn starch, however.
Commonly it is used as a replacement for yeast in traditional baked goods, where the taste from the yeast fermentation is not desirable. This taste improvement and the reduced time and resources required in the baking and resting stages make it a core product in mass baking and amongst an increasingly large number of other bakers.
