Variations in Baking Powder Color Quality

Baking powder is a mixture of bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch. Like any other food item, baking powder requires each ingredient to be high-quality to have the desired effect on all baked goods.

Fresh baking powder is a soft white and helps baked goods rise properly. As baking powder ages or if it is made with defective ingredients, it can generally turn yellowish-brown or darker. Using old or expired baking powder makes finished baked goods heavier and denser, which can be opposite of the desired effect for certain foods.

It's important to maintain quality standards when producing food items to assure consumers their baked goods will turn out as intended.
