A PURE, WHOLESOME, RELIABLE
CREAM OF TARTAR BAKING POWDER
Its superiority is unquestioned
Its fame world-wide
Its use a protection and a guarantee
against alum food
Cream of tartar is derived from grapes. It is used in Dr.
Price's Baking Powder in the exact form and composition in
which it occurs in that luscious, healthful fruit. A pound of
rich, ripe grapes contains a quantity of cream of tartar equiva
lent to that required to make baking powder sufficient to raise
a dozen ordinary-sized hot tea biscuit. The healthfulness of
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is beyond question.
Alum Baking Powders are Condemned by Physicians
Fifty-two different brands of alum and alum-phosphate baking powders were
recently analyzed by an official chemist. In every one of these fifty-two different
brands sulphuric acid was reported in large quantities, frequently greater than twenty
five per cent of the whole weight of the baking powder I
Chemical tests show that a portion of the alum from alum baking powder
remains as such and unaltered in the bread.
Alum baking powders are extravagant. They cost but two cents a pound to
make, yet they are sold at twenty-five cents a pound, or twenty-five ounces for
But, can the housewife afford, no matter at what price, to use a baking powder
which puts alum and sulphuric acid in her food?
