Oxidants and reducers

Oxidation and Reduction in Doughs As we discussed in a previous post, wheat reserve proteins have the unique property of forming a protein network, known as the gluten network, when they hydrate and undergo mechanical work (kneading). This gluten network creates cohesive and less sticky doughs that can be stretched, rolled, folded, and more. Additionally, the gluten network allows the gases generated during fermentation to be trapped within the dough. Doughs made from gluten-free cereals lack the ability to stretch … Continue reading Oxidants and reducers
