February 21, 2012

By using a non-sodium aluminum phosphate-based leavening system, the baking powder can reduce sodium by up to 44% over standard baking powders.

Caravan Ingredients (Lenexa, KS) has introduced a low-sodium baking powder for chemically leavened baked goods. By using a non-sodium aluminum phosphate-based leavening system, the baking powder can reduce sodium by up to 44% over standard baking powders, the company says.

The low-sodium baking powder is designed to release the proper amounts of leavening gas at the various stages of mixing in order to facilitate scaling and depositing of batters. The company says it can be used as an easier way to provide lower-sodium bakery products to consumers.
