Cream of Tartar, is a natural salt from the wine production and is used in many different baking recipes, such as making meringues and angel food cakes. It stabilizes products such as whipped cream and egg whites. Adding a pinch of cream of tartar when whipping egg whites will accelerate foaming and stabilize the texture.
