After the recent research that I did on Aluminum, we made this switch for our baking needs, in order to try to reduce the amount of Aluminum that we were ingesting. The main concern I found in my research was that Aluminum was not vital to any biologic process in our body (aka not natural to the body and could thus be viewed as a toxin), and that it has toxic implications to our mitochondria (the part of our cells that produce energy). For these reasons, we are attempting to reduce it in our household!
The aluminum-free brand does contain cornstarch which I am not crazy about because since it is not Organic Baking Powder, I cannot confirm if it is GMO free corn or not. Do you have an aluminum free baking powder that you recommend? Please comment below!
