How to Check for Baking Powder and Baking Soda Freshness

Updated May 17, 2018

We're sharing tips for anyone with the baking bug to check the freshness of both baking powder and baking soda.

What to Do

Notes

To test for baking powder freshness:

Place 1 tablespoon water in a bowl and add 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. If it bubbles and fizzes, it's still fresh.


To test for baking soda freshness:

Place 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a bowl with 1 tablespoon white vinegar. If it bubbles and fizzes, it's still fresh.

I've always known about the baking soda but, the baking powder is new to me!! Thanks so much! (jut tested mine and it"s GOOD!)

Thanks for sharing. Had no idea you could check for freshness. I usually just replaced every 6 months or so.

I never knew this either. What a great tip!

I found these tips to test freshness of baking soda and baking powder both interesting and useful - I never knew there was a way to check either and will do so today - many thanks!
