Cream of Tartar: The Perfect, Low Cost, Baking Powder Substitute!

BADIA Cream of Tartar, 2 Pounds 

I have to provide a 2 gram low sodium diet in our home and am constantly looking for different low sodium substitutes! I found this 2 lb container of Badia Cream of Tartar.  It cost $17.23 ($0.54 / Ounce). A great value!

I typically purchase no sodium baking powder. We go through a lot because we substitute baking powder for baking soda by using a 3 parts baking powder for every 1 part baking soda we would have used.  However, no sodium baking powder had been unavailable for awhile.
I learned that you can substitute 1/4 tsp baking soda with 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar for every 1 tsp of baking powder needed. This still decreases the amount of sodium by a substantial amount.

I was able to replace my sodium free baking powder with this low sodium alternative conveniently, easily and affordably. It was just as effective and added to the flavor, being that my substitution required a small amount of Baking soda.

It is kosher, clean and of great quality. It arrived timely and was nicely packaged.
Thanks for your service. I would definitely purchase this again!
