What is Cream of Tartar?

Cream of Tartar (a.k.a. Potassium Bitartrate) is a by-product of wine production. It is a residue left on the barrels when after making wine. Typical applications range from food production to industrial manufacturing throughout the UK. It is commonly a white powder with a mildly acidic taste and no discernible odour.

With its wide use in food and beverage production, you can find this in products ranging from wine stabilisation and as a chemical yeast (when paired with Sodium Bicarbonate). Additionally, it is a critical component in sodium-free salt, as an anti-caking agent, and prevents syrups from crystallising.

Non-Food applications include metal and rust treatment and cleaning when combined with other liquids, within pharmaceutical agents and even as an activation agent in hair dying. You will find Cream of Tartar in a range of products and industries and highlight its value.
