Alsa Baking Powder (Levure chimique)
Alsa baking powder is all you need to raise you cakes successfully. For round but light cakes, Alsa baking powder is a must. Know in France as lever chimique or levure de boulanger.
Unlike most American brands, Alsa is single-acting, which means that it creates the gas needed for leavening as soon as it is mixed with liquid ingredients. The double-acting powders that are common in the U.S. release gas in two stages: first when mixed with liquid ingredients and then when heated.
Alsa baking powder comes in 11 g sachets (8 sachets per pack).
