Bread Improver is a flour-based mixture of several components that enable the rapid development of a dough through to the finished baked product by reducing the time required to achieve a comparable result from the traditional long fermented doughs.
Dough Conditioners are ingredients that possess the ability to strengthen the gluten structure of the dough. This results in improved machinability and gas retention, thereby improving the volume, grain, and symmetry of the final loaf.
Crumb Softeners are used in bakeries to extend the shelf life of breads by retarding and/or reducing the rate of crumb firming. During baking, the starch in dough gelatinises and some of the amylose migrates into the water phase in the dough structure. Amylopectin remains within the starch granules, but it swells and loses its crystallinity.
During cooling of the bread, the amylopectin recrystallises causing firming of the bread crumb enabling the loaf to be sliced once it has cooled to below 35°C.
Staling of bread occurs as the result of the slower recrystallisation of the amylopectin over several days and its progress can be reduced by the addition of compounds such as GMS. This effect is produced regardless of whether or not the bread contains shortening.
Commonly used emulsifiers for bread making are:
SSL – Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate
CSL – Calcium Stearoyl Lactylate
GMS – Glycerol Monostearate
DATEM – Diacetyl Tartaric Acid Esters of Monoglycerides
