Baking Powder

Baking powder is a chemical leavening agent used in doughs and batters during cooking. The powder reacts with moisture, heat or acidity, producing carbon dioxide. The result is a "foaming action" which lightens and softens the dough or batter. Baking powder is generally baking soda mixed with an acid, usually acetic acid.
