Also known as Cream of Tartar or Potassium Acid Tartrate; Potassium Bitartrate is a white crystal or powder and a byproduct of the winemaking process as it forms inside wine barrels during fermentation. It comes from tartaric acid, a naturally occurring substance in grapes and some other tart fruits. Potassium Bitartrate has many culinary applications such as stabilizing egg whites and increasing their heat tolerance and volume, stabilizing whip cream thereby maintaining its texture and volume, preventing sugar syrups from crystallizing and reducing discoloration of boiled vegetables. Additionally it is used as the acid ingredient along with sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) to formulate baking powder.
