This versatile kitchen standby will brighten silverware or add body to egg whites. It is a byproduct of winemaking. IIn cooking it is known as cream of tartar.

In food, cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate) is used for:stabilizing egg whites, increasing their heat tolerance and volume,stabilizing whipped cream, maintaining its texture and volume, preventing sugar syrups from crystallising and reducing discolouration of boiled vegetables.

 Additionally it is used as a component of: baking powder, as an acid ingredient to activate baking soda, sodium-free salt substitutes, in combination with potassium chloride

A similar acid salt, sodium acid pyrophosphate, can be confused with cream of tartar because of their common function as a component of baking powder.

 cream of tartar can be mixed with an acidic liquid such as lemon juice or white vinegar to make a paste-like cleaning agent for metals such as brass, aluminum or copper, or with water for other cleaning applications such as removing light stains from porcelain. This mixture is sometimes mistakenly made with vinegar and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which actually react to neutralise each other, creating carbon dioxide and a sodium acetate solution.
