Why would I want to make homemade baking powder? There are many reasons you may want to consider making your own baking powder.
Corn starch is the main ingredient in commercial baking powder. With over 80% of our corn now GMO (in the U.S.), avoiding commercial baking powder would be yet another way to rid your pantry of GMO ingredients. If you have a corn allergy or if you’re on a grain-free diet you’ll want to avoid commercial baking powder. Knowing how to make homemade baking powder can come in handy when you’re out of baking powder and don’t feel like running to the store to buy more. 😉
