Tartaric Acid

Substituting for Cream of Tarter

Q. Since cream of tartar is derived from tartaric acid, can I use it as a substitute for tartaric acid?  If yes, what amount of cream of tartar equals tartaric acid?

A. Using cream of tarter is not going to be as effective as using tartaric acid because it is a neutralized version. If you do try to use it, we know it will take more, but not how much, because we don't know it's actual strength.
