Correct usage of bread improver

Correct use of bread improvers

Bread improver is a thing that is often used in making bread. Without bread improver, we would have no way to control the quality of flour when making bread. The quality and characteristics of different flours are different. Therefore, we can improve the bread through bread improver. Agents are used to improve the stability of flour during the production process, thereby ensuring the quality of bread. So it is very important to choose a correct bread improver.

What role does bread improver play in bread production?

First of all, bread improver can effectively improve the stability of the dough during the production process, such as improving the mixing resistance of the dough and improving the stability of the dough during fermentation. Secondly, bread improver can improve the expansion of the dough in the oven, mainly It is reflected in the volume of the bread and improves the uniformity of the internal structure of the bread; thirdly, the bread improver will maintain the softness of the bread for a long time, that is, it will delay the aging and retrogradation of starch, etc.

The biggest function of bread improver is to improve water quality and adjust the pH of water. After adjusting the water quality to optimal, gluten will be improved. In contrast, in the later stage, whether it is the baking expansion or softness of the bread, or the shelf life and texture fineness of the bread, it will be significantly improved.

Bread improvers have so many functions, how to choose one?

Professional bakers will first look at the ingredient list and choose high-quality products that contain amylase, glucose oxidase, emulsifiers, etc. Because amylase can hydrolyze starch into dextrin and reducing sugars, delaying the recrystallization process of starch, thereby delaying starch aging; on the other hand, the sugars decomposed by enzymes can provide nutrients to the yeast, allowing the yeast to produce gas evenly and lastingly, and Can increase bread area. Emulsifiers have the effect of improving dough elasticity, toughness, and hydrophilicity and lipophilicity. Therefore, they can effectively increase the volume of bread, make the internal structure of bread uniform and delicate, and delay the recrystallization process of starch granules, that is, delay starch aging. Glucose oxidase is a safe and effective dough oxidizer. They can promote the formation of disulfide bonds between proteins and strengthen the gluten network structure.

This type of compound bread improver is favored by many bakers. However, due to the diversification of user needs due to the different functions of these different ingredients, each bread improver development company often focuses on the formula ratio during the development process to meet the requirements of different customers and reduce customers’ production costs. Therefore, there are different types of bread improvers, such as strong-gluten bread improvers for weak flour gluten, anti-aging bread improvers for extending shelf life, and comprehensive bread improvers (gluten-strengthening and anti-aging properties). The aging effect is more prominent).
