Top tips

Balance and moderation

Sugar should form part of a well-balanced diet and, if eaten in moderation, will not have any harmful effects on health, such as obesity or skin disorders.

Test Baking Powder for freshness

Add half a teaspoon of baking powder to 2 tablespoons of warm water. This should cause an instant reaction with bubbles and foam. If not, then the baking powder is not fresh.
