Gluten (from Latin gluten, “glue”) is a protein composite found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten sensitivity (also known as gluten intolerance) is on the rise due to modification in wheat over the years as many humans can not digest gluten and suffer from spectrum of disorders. Symptoms include bloating, abdominal discomfort or pain, diarrhea, constipation, muscular disturbances, headaches, migraines, severe acne, fatigue, and bone or joint pain.
In recent times usage of wheat derived product CREAM OF WHEAT (MAIDA) has gone through the roof. Maida is rich in Gluten and super cheap, that is why it is widely used products in bakery products like Cake, Muffins, breads and other bakery products. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise & keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture.
Dough with higher gluten content promotes the formation of gluten strands and cross-links. If this dough is leavened with yeast, fermentation produces carbon dioxide bubbles, which, trapped by the gluten network, causes the dough to rise. Baking coagulates the gluten, which, along with starch, stabilizes the shape of the final product. Baked products are chewier in proportion to the length of kneading.
Needless to say bakery products with dazzling colours inside swanky outlets are full of Gluten and are harmful for many of us and our life. You do not think before popping a slice or two as they are dirt cheap and are easily available.
