What is it? Caster sugar is the name given to finely milled granulated sugar and, for that reason, it's sometimes called 'superfine' sugar.
What's it doing in my bread? We couldn't get that beautiful rise in our loaves if it weren't for the magic work sugar does in kick starting yeast fermentation. As yeast feeds on the sugar, it releases harmless but helpful bubbles of carbon dioxide.
What is it? Dextrose is the main naturally occurring form of glucose (sugar), chemically identical to the sugar found in our blood.
What's it doing in my bread? We couldn't get that beautiful rise in our loaves if it weren't for the magic work this sugar does in kick starting yeast fermentation. As yeast feeds on the sugar, it releases harmless but helpful bubbles of carbon dioxide.
What is it? Egg whites from hens; we separate these from the yolks and then dry them.
What's it doing in my bread? This helps our bread to aerate during baking, giving it a lighter texture and a lovely, fine crumb. Eggs are a great source of protein and vitamins too, making this a win-win ingredient.
What is it? Just eggs
What's it doing in my bread? As with lots of baking, eggs help things set. Again, this helps give Genius bread the texture and crumb that we all love. And again, there’s lots of vitamin and protein goodness to be had too.
What is it? A powder made from by-products of fermenting maize (sometimes known as corn).
What's it doing in my bread? This naturally controls the acidity of our bread which helps stop yeasts and mould from growing. Basically, it helps our bread stay fresher for longer, reducing the need for artificial preservatives or additives in our bread.
What is it? A special ingredient extracted from the bark of birch trees that’s totally safe to eat.
What's it doing in my bread? It’s essential to creating the lovely bubbly structure that makes our bread soft & delicious without having to rely on gluten.
What is it? Most salt that we buy in stores is iodised (and in some countries, this is how it must be sold by law). Iodising is a process of mixing table salt with tiny quantities of the micronutrient iodine.
What's it doing in my bread? It provides an essential source of iodine in the diet, preventing deficiencies which can impact thyroid function or pre-natal development.
What is it? We extract potato starch from the root tubers of potatoes. It has a neutral colour, taste and flavour.
What's it doing in my bread? Science at work! The potato starch helps forms a gel that supports the rising structure of the bread, which then bursts into soft, fluffy molecules between air bubbles to create Genius' soft crumb. Potato starch also makes for a great digestible source of carbohydrates, which release energy slowly - this helps to stave off hunger and you keep going for longer.
What is it? Rice flour is made by grinding raw rice all the way down into a superfine powder. It's much gentler on the stomach than gluten containing flours.
What's it doing in my bread? Rice flour works towards creating a lovely soft texture and also gives a slow, steady release of carbohydrates.
What is it? Rapeseed oil is a natural vegetable oil with a mild flavour - which is why it's often found in breads as well as lots of recipes for cakes, pastries and margarine.
What's it doing in my bread? Rapeseed oil makes a brilliant addition to any bread as it is both low in saturated fat (something we should all try and cut down on) and rich in vitamin E (a natural anti-oxidant we can always use more of). It acts as a humectant, which keeps our products fresher for longer.
What is it? A very common thickener made from fermented sugars, used in lots of foods.
What's it doing in my bread? Gluten is the reason traditional dough is a bit sticky. In Genius bread, we use a little bit of natural Xanthan gum to get this stickiness and help bind our ingredients together during proving and baking.
What is it? Yeast is actually the name for little microorganisms which are technically classified as members of the fungus family - but don't let that put you off! Yeast is used in all leavened breadmaking and has been for as long as there's been bread.
What's it doing in my bread? Letting dough 'rest' is a hugely important part of the breadmaking process. This is when the yeast gets to work, converting sugar into carbon dioxide which bubbles through the mixture helping the bread to rise. The yeast is then burnt off in the heat of the oven and we're left with a wonderful, fluffy loaf. As a natural source of B vitamins, it also aids digestion and your metabolism, supports the nervous system and keeps the skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver healthy.
