*By its nature, baking powder is gluten-free because it doesn’t have wheat, rye, barley, or triticale, the four types of grains that contain the protein. However, some brands might add starch to commercial products to protect against early chemical reactions occurring in storage, and that starch isn’t necessarily free from gluten.
