    During baking, the reducing sugars in dough combine with amino acids from protein to undergo Maillard reaction giving attractive brown colours to the whole wheat bread. Duncan states that the concentration of the reducing sugars present is proportional to the colour produced (Duncan, 1998). Furthermore, sugars act as antiplasticizers retarding the pasting of native starch or function as antistaling ingredients inhibiting the starch recrystallization which can extend the shelf life of the bread by delaying the gelatinization and the denaturation of protein (Giannou et al., 2003).…

    Protein bonding in baking involves glutenin and gliadin, two proteins found in flour. These two proteins form a bond when water is added to flour, such as when making dough. The bond these two proteins form results in the formation of gluten (Baker). Dough made from wheat flour and water will cause the gluten to transform into a thick, sticky, and elastic mass. This will allow the dough to rise many times its original size and set with a light texture.…
