Alsa

 

Baking Powder

Alsa produces a range of baking essentials, from the famous pink packs of baking powder, known in France as levure chimique or levure alsacienne. Unlike most American brands, Alsa is single-acting, which means that it creates the gas needed for leavening as soon as it is mixed with liquid ingredient

Poulain

Poulain is one of the oldest brands of chocolate in France. In the mid-nineteenth century, Victor-Auguste Poulain of Blois envisioned transforming chocolate into a mass-market treat. He produced chocolate bars and hot chocolate mix, and sponsored an advertising campaign, whose images remain familiar today.
