THK. ANGUS, WEDNESDAY. JAN U Ali
NO Impurities in
Royal Baking Powder.
It is the only baking powder yet found by chemical
analysis to be free from all impurities and absolutely
pure. This perfect purity results from the exclusive
use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared
by patent processes which totally remove all the tar
trate of lime. The cost of this chemically pure cream
of tartar is much greater than any other, and it is
used in no baking powder except the "Royal."
Dr. Edward G. Love, formerly analytical chemist for the
U. S. Government, who made the analyses for the New York
State Board of Health in their investigation of baking pow
ders, says of the purity and w hok-somencss of the " Royal " :
" I find the Royal Baking Powder composed of pure
and wholesome ingredients. It is a cream of tartar
powder, and does not contain cither alum or phosphates,
or other injurious substance.
(LaU U.S. GoiU Chemist) ' E. G. LOVE, PlI. D."
Prof. Love's tests, and the recent official tests by the
United States and Canadian Governments, show the
Royal Baking Powder to be a cream of tartar baking
powder superior to all others in strength and leavening
