SUGAR SUBSTITUTE FORMULAS
FOR USE IN SOFT DRINKS
Bottlcra of soft drinks m:y save
50,000 tons of sugar through using sub
stitutes without hurting the quality
of their product, but actually giving
it "body," according to the nurcau of
Chemistry, Department of Agricul
ture. This bureau is preparing to
furnish bottlers with sweetening
formulas that will allow the actual
sugar contained in soft drinks to be
cut 50 per cent or less, and at the
same time will preserve the custom
ary taste and quality of the bever
ages. Starch sugar, starch sirup, mal

The shortage of edible fats, tnhlch
has become a serious matter In Eur
ope, is now being felt in this country,
and any means by when such mater
ial can be produced for m noncdible
substitutes is an important contribu
tion to the food supply. A process by
which this may bo accomplished has
apparently been worked out by an
Oregon chemist who, in experiments
with lish oil, has found that by treat
ing it with hydrogen in a certain man
ner it is possible to produce both an
oil and a solid substance closely re
sembling lard, both of which are en
tirely tasteless and odorless and may
be used in cooking with.no apparent
trace of their origin.
A thorough cooking test of these
materiuls was recently made by a
demonstrator employed by the United
States Bureau of Fisheries. After
testing the oil and lard substitute in
bread and pastry, as well as for fry
ing, this demonstrator states that the
results were practically the same as if
lard or high-grade vegetable oil had
been used. The report coming from
the Pacific coast says that the mater
ials have also been tested by Govern
ment chemists with satisfactory re
sults. Arrangements are being made
to produce these materials on a com
BREAD WITHOUT SUGAR IS
NOW THE GREAT THING
A method of making bread with
neither sugar nor malt has been work
ed out by a milling company of Kan
sas City, according to the Baker's
Helper. This process uses germ mid
dlings, which are ordinarily sold for
livestock food. Seven pounds of
germ middlings aro weighed out for
use with 100 pounds of flour, placed
in a vessel, and scalded with water.
After it has stood for a short time
the residuum is strained out, and
the water is used In making up the
dougn, adding as much more water
as is necessary. Sponge made in
this way without the use of sugar
or malt shows an irfPreased expan
sion, with a loaf fine texture and ex
ceptional ilavor, a trifle whiter than
when sugar is used in baking. The
process has been perfected In the
milling company's laboratory,' and is
now being applied commercially.
Another process consists in -taking
5 per. cent of the flour to be used in
the bread batch and letting it stand
for several hours in five times its
volume of water, at a uniform tem
perature of 150 degrees. This makes
sugar unecessary, but does not dis
pense with tho desirability of using
POTATO CANDY AS A WAR-TIME
SOAP FROM TABLE REFUSE.
To conserve tho fats contained in
the"table refuse and dishwater of the
soldier's mess, the British military au
thorities installed grease traps, ac
cording to the Popular Science Month
ly. The fat collected in these traps
averages more than 1 ounce for each
man daily. The trap consists of a tin
lined wooden box devided into two
compartments by a parttion which
does not reach the bottom by about
four inches. The dish water and table
refuse are poured through a strainer
into tho vat. As the water cools the
fat forms a crust and is skimmed off.
Cold Storage Beef Decreases.
Lest tho apparently large figures on
beef in storage sent out by tho United
States Department of Agriculture
might have caused a misunderstand
ing, tho Food Administration recently
pointed out that beef in storage has
decreased from 34G million pounds on
January 1. to 227 million pounds on
June 1. Of this amount about 130 mil
lion pounds is meat in the process of
preparation and shipment to the Al
lies and our Army in France. Tho
rest represents less than three days
supply to the country.

No government department is per

canned goods could legally be bought
their purchase would be impossible,
the Food Administration has pointed
out, because of the difficulty accept

way of inspecton. Supplies of this
kind must bo obtained in reasonably
large units and must be uniform both

Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
