Flour: All-purpose flour is the most widely used flour. It contains a
special protein called gluten the structure builder of bread. When
mixed with liquid and kneaded or beaten, the gluten stretches and
gives elasticity to the dough by trapping bubbles of gas formed by
the yeast. Some flours, such as rye and whole wheat, lack sufficient
gluten and usually are used in combination with all-purpose flour.
Self rising flour, which already contains leavening and salt, is not
often recommended for yeast breads. However, all recipes were tested
with self rising flour; adjustments are indicated when necessary.
Yeast: Yeast is a live plant that gives off a gas that makes dough
rise: It is very sensitive-too much heat will kill it, but cold will
stunt its growth. Yeast is available in several forms: regular active
dry yeast, quick-acting active dry yeast and compressed yeast. All of
our recipes have been tested with dry yeast. Most of the recipes
follow the traditional method of dissolving the yeast in warm water
(105 to 115F). However, some recipes yield better results by mixing
the yeast with the flour, then beating in very warm water (120 to
Liquids: Water or milk are the most commonly used liquids. Water gives
bread a crisper crust; milk, a velvety texture and added nutrients.
Sweeteners: Sugar, honey or molasses provide "food" for the yeast,
enhance flavor and help brown the crust.
Salt: A flavor agent that is needed to control the growth of the
yeast and prevent overrising, which can cause the bread to collapse.
Fat: Added to contribute to tenderness and flavor.
Eggs: For flavor, richness and color, eggs are sometimes added.

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects claimed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
