Ammonia and alum are the most com
mon adulterants used in the manufacture
of baking powders. The government re
port shows that a large percentage of the
baking powders on the market contain
eiiher one or the other, or both these per
What woman would use an ammonia or
alum baking powder if she knew ii? Such
powders not only undermine the health.
but ammonia gives to the complexion a
sallow or blotched appearance. The
presence of ammonia or alum in a bsklrg
powder, however, can easily be detected.
To Detect Ammonia. Mix one heap
ing teaspoonful of baking powder with
ore teaspoonful of water in a ticcup;
Don thoroughly tor a lew moments, stir
to prevent burning, and if ammonia is
present you can smell it in Ihe rising
steam . Or, place a can of the suspected
powder top down on a . hot stove for a
minute or two, then take of the coyer
To Detect Alum. Alum powder csn
be tested by putting a couple of teaspoon
fuls of the powder in a p lafs of cold
water. If no effervescence, that is bub
bling or simmering, takes place, condemn
toe powder and return it at once.
Some alum powders, however, like the
"Calumet," "Bon Bon."-"Chicago Yeast,"
etc., contain phosphates in combination
with alum and with these brands the fol
lowing testis simple and sure.
Take one half teaspoonful o: baking
powder in lid of say half pound can; char
thoroughly over a strong alcohol flame,
a good gas iet, or red hot coals. After
charring (that is, burning until tbe whole
mass is black) add a teaspoonfull of wat
er and place a bright piece of silver c-in
in the solution, btir for one minute,
then take out the silver. If the powder
prove a cream of tartar powder tbe coin
will be bright; if an alum powder it will
have sulphur stains. -
Now pour a little vinegar into the lid
and smell the fumes. Alum powders
gwe off sulphuretted hydrogen, which
may be detected by its foul odor.
