Cream Of Tartar Ok?
0

2 posts in this topic

Someone in our church group just found out he has a gluten allergy, so we are trying to accomodate him when we bring snacks. I am planning on making schaumtorte which is egg whites, sugar, then fruit on top. But I am supposed to use cream of tartar with the eggs. I know why it is there: to stabilize the egg whites while you beat the heck out of them. But I don't know what it is. Can someone tell me if it is safe for a gluten free diet? Thank you so much!

Hi Narnia and welcome! :)

Yes cream of tartar is safe for a gluten-free diet. If you are going out to buy it, I would suggest McCormicks--they are a company that will disclose any added gluten ingredients on the label. I use their products exclusively.

Just for fun, here's a little info. on cream of tartar
