SLIDE #13 – Corn Allergy list items #10 – Baking Powder
Baking Powder is typically a mix of Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), cream of tartar, and a lot of times in processing and manufacturing it has Corn Starch added in or other elements such as aluminum. You can always make your own homemade blend of Baking Powder without the corn starch. Most times on a ingredient label however you will not always be able to discern if the baking powder has corn starch added in it or not. Many are not required to label certain additives if they are within a certain range, according to the FDA labeling requirements.
Baking Powder has many uses from baking, cleaning all the way to cosmetics, so be cautious of any products with baking powder on the label if you have a corn allergy.
Contacting the manufacturer is always suggested if you are trying a product or food with baking powder on the label. While it could only be a mix consisting of Sodium Bicarbonate and cream of tartar, other additives such as corn starch and aluminum are often added to baking powder mixes for a plethora of reasons from shelf life preservation to chemical reaction reasons.
*Asterisk Items are items that are not always corn derived and require in depth research on the item in question.
