What would make a good visual substitute for cocaine?

I need to take a close-up photograph of some cocaine (for a book cover).
Of course, being a good boy, I don't actually have any nor am I quite sure what the stuff looks like. Honest.
I have several 'white powders' around the house -- all for very normal purposes such as cleaning clothes and sweetening cakes. I'd like the photo to look as authentic as possible. I have icing sugar, washing powder, talc, cornflour, salt and bread flour among other things. Which of these would look the most convincing?
