No aluminum=no burning tongue any more!
Reviewed in the United States on July 2, 2022
I bought 2 5lb buckets before. The price increased so much lately that I tried another brand that didn't have aluminum, but said double acting. Turns out all those double acting ones have aluminum or some other unpleasant agent to slow the reaction process.
So from here on, I am only using this brand. We have a large family and bake a lot... homemade biscuits, pancakes, cookies, etc. were going bad and being thrown out because we couldn't handle how it made the tongue burn when I tried a different brand.
Just remember though, since it is fast-acting, you have to be too. Get it cooking as soon as you get it mixed in so you can maintain the rise. I always make sure the oven or griddle is fully warm before I add the powder so the dough or batter doesn't fall while waiting to heat something up.
Also, baking powder can expire... it won't be as effective. This large bucket should only be for a business or family who does LOTS of baking. (Ie we use 1/4 cup every time we make pancakes. If you use 1 tablespoon, maybe it's not for you.)
