Ryzon Baking Powder

RYZON, The Perfect Baking Powder, is composed of three ingredients. Two of them, bicarbonate of soda and cornstarch, are used in nearly all baking powders. The third, monosodium phosphate is new. The desirability of a phosphate baking powder has long been known.

Indeed, phosphates in food are necessary to life. The adaptation of pure monosodium phosphate to baking powder use through scientific genius made possible the production of RYZON, The Perfect Baking Powder.

The Story of RYZON

For many years the General Chemical Company has been supplying materials for baking powder to other manufacturers. During all this time, the eminent scientists on the research staff of this company have been studying the baking powder problem—to produce a pure, healthful, efficient baking powder.

With every facility at hand and with the foremost scientific minds in America at work, it is not surprising that The Perfect Baking Powder has, indeed, been produced. But these scientists did not stop at their own judgment.

RYZON was submitted to food experts, master chefs and domestic science teachers, and by them also pronounced perfect, before it was finally introduced to American housewives.
