Tricks to Introduce Alum Baking
Powders which should be Exposed
There has recently been attempted at
some of our grocery stores, and also at
dwelling homes, by agents who are try
ing to sell alum baking powders what
the exhibitors call a baking powders
test. They pretend to show by some
boiling test that pure cream of tartar
baking powers contain something
which every woman of intelligence
k no ws they do not. It does not need
a chemist to expose this trick. Cream
of tartar, which is the chief constituent
of the best and most wholesome baking
powder is originally a clear white cry
stal. This is ground into a fine creamy
flour in which form mixed with baking
soda it is present in the baking powder.
Cream of tartar when mixed with
water and boiled simply returns to its
crystalline form, and that is all there is
to the so-called test The matter of
special interest to the public is to know
what these people oiler in place of
cream of tartar powders of well known
purity and established reputation
against which these slandersare directed
They are offering a baking powder
which oillcial analysis have repeatedly
shown is made from alum, a drug so
well recognized by physicians and
scientists as injurious to health that
in many countries its use in bread is en
tireh-Jprohlblted! So cheap and Inferior
are the ingredients of this powder that
it costs to make less than three cents a
pound. No prudent housewife will
knowingly put such stuff as this into
