Are there any substitutes for sodium-free baking powder?
Check the "dietetic" section of the grocery store for a commercial product. If none is available, a pharmacist can prepare the following formula: 39.8 grams of potassium bicarbonate, 28.0 grams of cornstarch, 7.5 grams of tartaric acid; and 56.1 grams of potassium bitartrate. Use 1-1/2 teaspoons for each 1-teaspoon of regular baking powder. Add at the end of the mixing time and avoid over-mixing.
