Baby powder and water.

2 posts in this topic

I mixed some baby powder (2 tsp) and some water (1 oz) together and microwaved it just to see what would happen and it came out chunky and gelatinous. Did I make some crude form of gelatin or was it something else? The baby powder says it is made up of corn starch, tricalcium phosphate, and some added lavender/chamomile fragrance stuff.

 

I think I just made some really nasty gelatin, but I'm not sure.

 

(sorry about the units, but I'm working with kitchen utensils and am too lazy to convert them. :embarass:)

I think you just made a blancmange.

Hot water and starch will form a gel.
