Prevent Onion Powder From Caking

I always had trouble with onion powder (and other powders) caking soon after the container was opened. To measure an amount, I would have to gouge out a lump and rub it through a sieve.


Not any more. I save those little desiccant containers that come in many over the counter medicines. I place one in a newly purchased bottle of onion powder (or a bottle of powder I have salvaged by rubbing through a sieve). Voilà! Months later, the powder hasn't caked and dispenses freely.

If the container they put in YOUR medicine is SAFE-it should be just as save in with the onion powder.

I read somewhere that you should not leave those things in your medicine bottles because they cause the medicine to break down. Just FYI.

What you say is entirely possible, but I doubt it. If it were true, why do the drug manufacturers and pharmacists not tell you to remove the desiccant.
