Cream of Tartar
Cream of Tartar is a white, odorless powder that is a byproduct of winemaking. It is also known as potassium bitartrate and is a popular ingredient in baking.
Cream of Tartar is used to stabilize egg whites and whipped cream, giving them a creamier texture. It is also commonly used in baking to activate baking soda, resulting in a lighter, fluffier product. It can also be used as a natural cleaning agent for metals and other household items.
To stabilize egg whites, add 1/8 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar per egg white. To activate baking soda, add 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar per cup of flour. When used as a cleaning agent, mix with water to form a paste and apply to the surface to be cleaned.
It is also gluten-free, although it is processed in a facility where allergens are present.
