Bakers know that baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods. What is less common knowledge is that the ideal baking powder for keto baking needs to have a higher level of active ingredients to lift up denser heavier nut based flours. Also some brands are loaded with aluminum, wheat or starch based derivatives to keep them free flowing and therefore they contain gluten and are counter to a keto / low carb way of living.
