Bread Making

Role of Ingredients Flour It acts as a binding agents as an absorbing agents It gives better volume, softness, texture and flavour. It affects the keeping quality. It builds structure of the products. It holds other ingredients together. It is the backbone of yeast Products.

Yeast It takes sugar and releases CO2 and lcohol. It improves the flavour, grain and texture. !or conditioning the dough, so that it attains sufficient pressure of CO2 gas and form the structure or the product. Salt It gives saltish tastes and enhances the s"eet taste. It gives flavour. It controls the yeast activity. It is a tougher "ithout salt the dough is "et. It keeps the product moist and fresh for a long time. #ore salt in the bread formula "ill make the top crust dark in colour. It gives strengthening effect to the protein, "hich improves the gas retention Po"er. It improves the flavour, texture and grain. It enhances the natural flavour of other ingredients. It helps to prevent the formation and gro"th of undesirable bacteria at a certain level in the yeast raised dough It improvers the $ P and self life.

Water It gives moisture to the products It helps to distribute the dry ingredients evenly in to the dough. It helps to build the structure. It controls the dough temperature. It controls the dough consistency "hich may affect the volume and texture. It helps to form the gluten "hen mixed "ith flour and kneaded. It "ets and s"ells starch and renders it digestible. It keeps the product palatable longer.

Fat Sugar

It improves the self life. It converts into vapour during baking, "hich requires more space and thus leavens the products. It improves the nutritional value. It helps to retain the moisture and it improvers its slice ability. It should be added in the last stage of mixing, other"ise it controls the $ P. It makes the product tender and more palatable. It improvers the eating quality, self life and texture quality. It gives a characteristic flavour. It improvers the crumb structure and crust. It gives softness and taste. It keeps the flour gluten. It provides extensibility to the dough.

It gives s"eet taste It is a food for yeast It produces CO2 that raises the dough fabric %structure& It improves the flavour and taste It retains moisture for a longer time and improves the self life. It helps to get crust colour It helps to give a smooth, soft, "hite texture grain and crumbs. It improves the toasting quality, improves the colour and flavour of the toast by caramelisation.

Milk It improves the nutritional value It improves the gas retention po"er of dough and it helps in producing soft and silky structure. It improves the crust colour and "ater retention po"er of bread by the presence of lactose. It improves the texture quality. It keeps the product moist and improves that self life. It contains butterfat, "hich adds unique flavour to the products It helps to bind the flour protein It has a buffering action on dough but exercise fermentation may produce undesirable quality of lactic acid, "hich may break do"n the gluten resulting in bread having a very coarse and dark crumb and unpleasant sour taste and flavour. Improvers It improves the gluten strength and gives soft and shines texture.

It improves the leavening activity and the dough extensibility It controls the mold gro"th It improves the product external and internal qualities. %'.g. (olume, Crust Colour, structure, texture, moisture, aroma, grain, taste, etc& It improves the natural value and the slicing quality. It increase the product self life It helps to increase the fermentation tolerance

Bread Making Methods


Straight dough Method In this method mix all the ingredients in one stage and knead it until the flour protein is "ell developed. )hen the dough to ferment for a predetermined time. )his fermentation period depends on the quality and quantity of yeast, "ater, salt, strength of flour, temperature, etc. If the fermentation time is up to * hours, that is short process methods. If it is more than *hours that is long process method. Salt Delayed Method In this method, mix all the ingredients except salt + fat. ,ecause salt has a controlling effect on en-ymatic action of yeast. .ue to absence of salt, the speed of fermentation is enhanced and gluten is matured in a reasonably short time. !or this method three fourth of mixing should be given initially and one fourth of mixing at the time of adding salt. )he salt is added at the knock back stage. )he method of adding salt is applied as per the convenience of individual baker. No dough time Method In this method, the dough is not fermented in the usual manner. It is /ust allo"ed to rest for 01 minutes. ,ecause of this less fermented time, yeast quantity should be increased to achieved the production of gas and conditioning of gluten and by making the dough little slacker and "armer Sponge and Dough Method In this method the ingredients are mixed in t"o stages. In the first stage a part of flour %213&, proportionate amount of "ater, all the yeast and yeast foods are mixed together. 4onger fermentation sponges may contain some amount of salt also. #ixing operation is carried out /ust sufficiently to incorporate all the ingredients evenly. )his sponge is fermented for a predetermined time.

5ponge fermentation time depends on the quality and quantity of flour.

Fermented Dough Method )his is a variation of sponge and dough method. (ery often a bread formula contains milk, milk po"der, egg substantial quantity of fat and sugar as in the case of s"eet bread, .anish pastry and other fermented products. In all these formulas, ingredients "ill have retarding effect on yeast activity. If all the formula yeast, part of flour, yeast foods and sufficient "ater are mixed together /ust like flying ferment, the yeast gets initially an environment, "hich is conducive for vigorous activity and at the end of fermentation time it is in a fit condition to take the extra load of fermentation. $hen ferment is ready, it is mixed into the dough along "ith the remaining ingredients and allo"ed to ferment for the second stage of fermentation.
