BakM Powder Economy Royal Baking Powder costs only a fair price, and is cheaper and better at its price than any similar article in the world. The manufacturers of Royal Baking Powder have always declined to produce a cheap baking powder at the sacrifice of quality or wholesomeness. The highest grade and most highly refined ingredients only areemployed in Royal; hence its well known superiority. It is always the case that the consumer suffers in pocket if not in health by accepting cheap powders as substitutes for Royal Baking Powder. The Royal is made from pure grape cream of tartar, and is the embodiment of all the excellence possible to be attained in the highest class baking powder. Avoitl alutu baking powders.
