Homemade Aluminum Free Baking Powder

Aluminum is a soft, durable lightweight metal. It is a very useful metal  in many industries, including the food industry. But at what cost? Aluminum deposits itself in the bones and central nervous system when eaten. It competes with calcium in the body, causing osteoporosis and growth retardation in infants. Aluminum increases estrogen related issues, including contributing to tumor growth. It has been shown to be a large factor in Alzheimer’s disease.

Aluminum is found in the following products.

    • Salted snacks
    • Hot cocoa mixes
    • Coffee creamers
    • Pickles and relish
    • Flour tortillas
    • Pizza crust
    • Doughnuts
    • Cookies
    • Pancakes
    • Waffles
    • Cupcakes
    • Cakes
    • Baking mixes
    • Brownies
    • Pastries
    • Corn bread
    • Banana bread
    • Carrot bread
    • Dipping batter for fried foods
    • Microwave Popcorn
    • Muffins
    • Self-rising flour
    • Bakeware
    • antiperspirants
    • Many body lotions and cremes
    • Most cosmetics
    • Shampoos and conditioners
    • Soaps
    • Suntan lotions
    • Lip Balm
    • Over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs containing aluminum are too numerous to list.
    • Every beverage sold in an aluminum can (attention beer and soda drinkers)
    • Every acidic food sold in an aluminum can
    • Buffered Aspirin users are ingesting as much as 700 mg of aluminum per day
    • Antacids contain 200 mg of aluminum per pill!
    • 1 slice of processed cheese contains 50 mg of aluminum

Aluminumized baking powder is now being used in many foods that were formerly prepared without baking powder, such as pizza crust, raised doughnuts, pie crusts, cookies, waffles, prepared meats, cheeses, and other products that were once aluminum-free. I suggest you  make your own!

Put the antacids down and drink a glass of raw milk!

Do you have Aluminum Toxicity?

As the metal aluminum is present in our food, water supply, and soil, most people suffer from some degree of aluminum toxicity.   After years of accumulated exposure and storage of it in body tissues, this poison can have results ranging from brain degeneration to skeletal deformities.

Symptoms:

  • It is particularly poisonous to the nervous system with a range of symptoms that can include disturbed sleep, nervousness, emotional instability, memory loss, headaches, and impaired intellect.
  • It can stop the body’s ability to digest and make use of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.  This prevents bone growth and reduces bone density.  Aluminum can also cause conditions which actually force calcium out of the bones.  Either of these situations can bring on weakness and deformation in the bone structure with crippling effects.
  • Toxicity can also result in aching muscles, speech problems, anemia, digestive problems, lowered liver function, colic and impaired kidney function.

Aluminum Free Baking Powder

1/4 cup baking soda

1/2 cup cream of tartar

1/4 cup arrow-root powder OR organic corn starch

Mix together and store in an air tight container. I have been using this for many years, and it works exactly the same as the store-bought versions. It is also much, much cheaper! Better yet, make your own sourdough starter 🙂
