Ammonia and alum are the most common

baking powders. The government report
shows that a large .'percentage of the baking
powders on the market contain either one

What woman wonld nse an' alum' or am
monia baking powder, if she knew it? Such
powders not only undermine the health, but
ammonia gives the complexion a sallow or
blotched appearance. The presence of
alum or ammonia in baking powder, how
ever, can easily be -detected.
To Detect Ammonia. Mix one heaping
teaspoonful of baking powder with one tea
spoonful of water in a tin cup boil thor
oughly for a few moments', stir to' prevent
burning, and if ammonia is present yon can
smell it in the rising steam. Or, place the
suspected powder top down on a hot stove
for a minute or two, then take off the
cover and smell.
To Detect Alum. Alum powder can be
tested by putting a couple of teaspoonfuls

return it at ouce.
