Cream of Tartar Bulk ( 100 g )
A fine white powder derived from a crystalline acid deposited on the inside of wine barrels. Cream of Tartar is added to candy and frosting mixtures for creamier consistency, and to egg whites before beating to improve stability and volume. Also used in candy making to prevent crystallization. Odorless, colorless with a slight acid taste.
Cream of tartar has three main uses:
- Act as a leavening agent. In bread making, you use yeast to leaven the bread. You wouldn't want your cookies to taste yeasty, though, so you use cream of tartar instead!
- Stabilize egg whites. The acidic cream of tartar helps egg whites keep their high peaks, even in hot oven temperatures. This makes it perfect for meringue recipes or making cloud bread.
- Create creamier frostings, icings, or syrups. Using cream of tartar in your frosting recipe will prevent the creation of sugar crystals. It makes the best-textured frostings and icings, and it makes syrups that don't have crunchy sugar capsules.
- Use as a cleaning agent. Mix cream of tartar with a bit of water to clean stainless steel appliances.
