Tips for Baking Powder and Baking Soda

Because Baking Powder and Baking Soda are levening agents, they need to be fresh, and at their peak for best results.

Always store them in air tight glass or plastic containers after opening. Ziplock type plastic bags are slightly porus and allow small amounts of air to enter, reducing their effectiveness, and the absorbtion of odors, which will leach into fine baked products.

If stored properly, they will keep for up to 6 months in your cupboard.
