Gluten-free baking powder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm about to make a sponge cake and realized I only have gluten-free baking powder. The cake is not gluten free. Does it make a difference?

 

Thanks,

Paloma

What is gluten-free baking powder?

 

Baking powder is a combination of sodium bicrbonate and sodium aluminum sulfate, with, sometimes, cornstarch added as a non-caking agent. Where would gluten come from in the first place?

 

I suspect what you're buying is a manufacturer's way of capitalizing on the gluten-free mania.
