Non-GMO Verified Baking Powder

Non-GMO Verified Ingredient

APRIL 29, 2016  -  Our Baking Powder is now Non-GMO Project Verified. Instead of the typical corn starch base, Ciranda's premium Baking Powder uses an Organic Potato Starch base which offers additional functionality in breads and baked goods. Potato Starch has a low swelling temperature (less than 140°F / 60°C) which creates volume and prevents dough from falling. It forms a crisp crust and moist, tender crumb.
