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.
Ground Yellow Maize Starch
What is it?Ground yellow maize starch comes from typical yellow corn but isn't ground quite as finely as cornflour.
What's it doing in my bread?This is another ingredient that helps us achieve that perfect bread crumb texture, and it works together with the other starches to help you feel fuller for longer.
Iodised Salt (salt, potassium iodate)
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?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?Tapioca is a starch and a staple foodstuff in some countries. It comes from the cassava root which hails from Brazil.
What's it doing in my bread?Tapioca works well as an addition to heavier flours - it lightens the result (so you get a fluffy loaf!) and also contributes to the binding properties that we need for successful gluten-free baking.
Vegetable Oil (rapeseed oil)
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.
