1. Regular baking powder has GMO corn byproducts in them. The only organic baking powder that i could find is Rumford aluminum free brand.
2. When choosing an organic cooking oil:
Never use Canola, Corn, Soybean, or other brands that have hydrogenated, or partially hydrogenated (or interesterified) oils listed - as they are quite unhealthy for human consumption.
Also note: that the caloric values are never a consideration when choosing organic foods that we ingest. There are no bad or unhealthy foods that are organic in nature. The main consideration in choosing the foods we eat are by personal choices, known allergies, and quantities that we ingest in one sitting.
Using common sense is imperative when choosing any diet to lose weight. With that being said try this organic carrot cake and let me know what you think about it.
