A bread improver is a combination of baking ingredients created to boost dough enhancement and tolerance during manufacturing. It restructures and strengthens gluten to simplify production. It optimizes the action of the yeast by stabilizing fermentation and utilizing oxidants to improve and increase the capacity of gas retention.
Bread improver ingredients include emulsifiers and enzymes as well as oxidation agents. They work as an aid to bakers by allowing the dough to smooth out easily and increasing yields. Bread improvers are used with all types of baking equipment. They improve the stability of the bread-making process in all conditions resulting in consistent results.
