Baking Powder

Baking Powder

I always wondered how long baking powder lasted since I rarely use it. I found this useful piece of info. Baking powder should be kept dry in a sealed container to prevent it from losing its potency. To test it, pour 50 mL (1/4 cup) hot tap water over 2 mL (1/2 tsp.) of baking powder.

    Baking powder should be kept dry in a sealed container to prevent it from
    losing its potency. To test it, pour 50 mL (1/4 cup) hot tap water over 2 mL
    (1/2 tsp.) of baking powder. If fresh, it will bubble actively. If this
    doesn't happen, discard and buy a new supply.

    I have found that if it's a really humid/rainy summer the baking powder doesn't last well even in an air conditioned house.
