Is Baking Powder Keto-Friendly?
The majority of baked goods recipes call for no more than about one teaspoon of baking powder.
Considering the fact that there are just 1.3g of carbs in a teaspoon, it would appear that the addition of this amount of baking powder wouldn’t make much of a dent in your recipes.
If anything, other ingredients that are typically used to bake cookies, cakes, and muffins have a much higher carb count than baking powder.
What some keto dieters may be especially intuitive about is the fact that baking powder has corn starch. One teaspoon of cornstarch has 2.4g of carbs, though you won’t get that amount when it’s incorporated in baking powder.
As such, you shouldn’t be too concerned about the inclusion of baking powder when baking things like cookies, muffins, and biscuits.
That said, if you’re really trying to minimize your consumption of carbs, you can make yourself a more keto-friendly version by combining one part baking soda and two parts cream of tartar.
