Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder?
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum?and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder:
I 100 Per Cent Digested I
Bread made with
I 681/* Per Cent. Digested | /
Bread* made with \ /
alum powder: y
\ 67% Per Cent. Digested |
These tests, which are absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a fact of great importance
to everyone: Food raised witn Royal, a cream of
tartar Baking Powder, is shown to be entirely diges
tible, while the alum and phosphate powders are found
to largely retard the digestion of the food made from
Undigested food is not only wasted food, but it
is the source of very many bodily ailments.
