Helpful hints

  • Cream of tartar is the potassium acid salt of tartaric acid, which is a by-product of wine making. One teaspoon contains 495 mg potassium. When using cream of tartar with baking soda to replace phosphorus-containing baking powder, be aware the potassium content of food will be higher but phosphorus is much lower.
  • Since the potassium in a tortilla made with low phosphorus baking powder is higher than regular tortillas, be sure to limit portion and other potassium sources if you are on a low-potassium diet.

Lower-Phosphorus Flour Tortillas
larry21 says:

There is no need for baking powder or soda in flour tortillas. There original tortillas only have flour lard water.
