As with many common household products today, baking powder is so ubiquitous that we hardly imagine someone needed to invent it. But Dr. Price did, and marketed it well, along with his famous Delicious Flavoring Extracts.
According to Bottlebooks.com, Dr. Price’s Delicious Flavoring Extract was a product of the partnership of V. Clarence Price and Charles R. Steele. They “were in business together from 1874 until 1883. When Steele left to go into real estate in 1887, the company was called the Price Flavoring Extract Co. They were located on Water St. in Chicago. They sold a variety of flavors.”
A more detailed story of the inventor of baking powder is available in the book published by his great grand daughter Victoria Price, daughter of actor Vincent Price.
