Homemade Baking Powder
Store bought baking powder is not allowed when you are eating clean because 1) it contains aluminum which is toxic to the body, and 2) corn starch is the main ingredient in commercial baking powder, and cornstarch is also not allowed on a clean eating program (as I learned on my body makeover program, arrowroot is a natural and healthy substitute for constarch). Moreover, cornstarch is made from corn, and with 80% of corn now GMO, if you are concerned about going non-GMO (as you should be), cornstarch has to be eliminated.
- 1/2 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Arrowroot Powder or Tapioca Starch
- 1 Cup Cream of Tartar
Homemade Baking Powder: 1/4 cup cream of tartar + 2 Tablespoons baking soda. Sift together through a fine strainer 3 times into a small bowl. Tastes better too. Store airtight at room temperature.
