Real cream of tartar, or tartaric acid, comes from the residue on wine caskets, where the tartaric acid accumulates from the grapes. It has a caustic, somewhat sharp flavor and is often used for baking. (Reference 1) It is used as an added ingredient to make things fluffy, such as meringues, or to give foods a creamy quality, such as frosting. (Resource 1) It is also used to remove stain off copper or brass pans. It has also been used as a cleaning agent for teeth, since 1881. (Reference 2)
