What is the difference between baking soda & baking powder? Question: What Is the Difference Between Baking Soda & Baking Powder? Answer: Both baking soda and baking powder are leavening agents, which means they are added to baked goods before cooking to produce carbon dioxide and cause them to 'rise'. Baking powder contains baking soda, but the two substances are used under different conditions. Baking Soda is pure sodium bicarbonate. When baking soda is combined with moisture and an acidic ingredient (e.g., yogurt, chocolate, buttermilk, honey), the resulting chemical reaction produces bubbles of carbon dioxide that expand under oven temperatures, causing baked goods to rise. The reaction begins immediately upon mixing the ingredients, so you need to bake recipes which call for baking soda immediately, or else they will fall flat!sodium bicarbonatecarbon dioxide Baking Powder contains sodium bicarbonate, but it includes the acidifying agent already (cream of tartar), and also a drying agent (usually starch). Baking powder is available as single-acting baking powder and as double-acting baking powder. Single- acting powders are activated by moisture, so you must bake recipes which include this product immediately after mixing. Double-acting powders react in two phases and can stand for a while before baking. With double-acting powder, some gas is released at room temperature when the powder is added to dough, but the majority of the gas is released after the temperature of the dough increases in the oven.cream of tartar
GRAIN Cereal grains were some of the first domesticated plants, and are the most important staple foods throughout the world. Cereal grains are the least expensive source of calories for human consumption. At sites in Jordan near the Dead Sea, archaeoligists have uncovered remains of four structures used to store grains about 11,300 years ago (9,300 BC) - 1,000 years before domesticated plants were known to be cultivated there. This is the oldest known evidence for systematic storage of wild grains. It is believed that hunter-gatherers sowed wild seeds in fields and stored the surplus for 1,000 to 2,000 years before domesticated species appeared. The would have made it possible to establish permanent communities before cultivation of domesticated plants began. Grains, also called cereal or cereal grains, are the seeds or fruits of various plants in the grass family, and include wheat, corn, rice, barley, oats, millet, rye, sorghum, and triticale. Some other seeds that are not grasses, but are usually characterized as grains are buckwheat, quinoa, and wild rice.cereal grains http://www.foodreference.com/html/fgrain.html BELL RINGER

Where does tapioca come from, is it a grain? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapioca For Lance McDanel: What is triticale? http://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Triticale Unfortunately, Americans consume less than one serving of whole grains per day. (Slavin et al, 2001) TRIVIA Nutritionists recommend at least 3 servings of whole grain foods each day (about 16g per serving or 48g per day). (USDA Dietary Guidelines 2005) The USDA Food Pyramid recommends making half your grains whole grains. (mypyramid.gov) People that include whole grain and whole wheat products in their diet each day are less likely to get certain chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes compared to people who don’t eat whole wheat foods. Slavin 2004 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hops For Ryan Neufer Is hops considered to be a grain? Hops is not a grain, rather the flower of a climbing plant.
How to Choose Whole Grain Foods Check the ingredient statement on food labels and look for a “whole grain” listed as the first ingredient. Some common whole grain ingredients include: whole wheat, whole barley, whole oats and oatmeal, graham flour, brown rice, whole grain corn, whole grain cornmeal, and whole rye Other whole grains include amaranth, millet, quinoa, sorghum and triticale. Beware of products labeled with words such as “multi-grain,” “100% Wheat,” or “stone ground” they may not necessarily be “whole grain” – make sure the ingredient statement lists “whole” before the specific grain
Anatomy of Grain Kernel Bran – The outer covering of the kernel Endosperm - The largest part of the kernel and is very high in starch Germ- Often called the heart of the kernel This slide is to help you with # 1 - 6 on your ‘GRAIN PRODUCTS’ paper for note taking.
A Close LOOK at the Grain Kernel BranEndospermGerm Outer protective covering of the kernel Source of vitamins Source of fiber Bran is removed during refining. Largest part of the kernel Contains most of the starch & protein Few minerals Little fiber It is meant to be the food supply for the plant as it grows MAIN source of energy The only part of the kernel in refined flour The heart of the kernel Contains fat (can go rancid) Is the reproductive part of the kernel Richest in vitamins, minerals, protein, & fat Smallest part of kernel Germ is removed during refining. Whole grain products contain all 3 parts of the kernel.

What vitamins are added to bread to enrich it? If you’re not sure read through your handout / notes from the video titled, ‘Amazing Grains.’
Nutritional Value of Bread Hint: “B” for bread…. Vitamin “B” What are the B vitamins we learned about many units ago that are also found in bread? NIACIN THIAMIN RIBLOFLAVIN
Additives What are they? Are they bad for us? What is a common example of an additive in our food that has been used for centuries? What are the purposes of putting additives in bread?
ADDITIVES Food Additive: Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavor or improve its taste and appearance. Some additives have been used for centuries; for example, preserving food by pickling (with vinegar), salting, as with bacon, preserving sweets or using sulfur dioxide as in some wines. With the advent of processed foods in the second half of the 20th century, many more additives have been introduced, of both natural and artificial origin. (source - wikipedia) Some additives are manufactured from natural sources such as soybeans and corn, which provide lecithin to maintain product consistency, or beets, which provide beet powder used as food coloring. Other additives are man-made. Artificial additives can be produced more economically, with greater purity and more consistent quality than some of their natural counterparts. A substance added to a food for a specific purpose in that food is referred to as a direct additive. Many direct additives are identified on the ingredient label of foods. WHAT ARE THREE EXAMPLES OF ADDITIVES THAT ARE USED TO CHANGE GRAIN PRODUCTS? COLORING, SWEETENER, PRESERVATIVES (BHT)
Aluminium silicate - Mineral salt, anticaking agent used in medications and vending machine dried milk. Amino acids Compounds - needed by the human body in a certain combination. Animal protein usually has the needed composition, but amino acids are also used to fortify vegetables. Ammonium carbonates - Mineral salt, adjusting and modifying agent. Irritant to mucous membranes, alters pH of urine and may cause loss of calcium and magnesium. Used in some medications, baked goods, baking powder, cocoa items confectionary, ice cream. Anti-caking agents - many foods tend to coagulate and specific agents are needed to prevent this. Many anti-caking agents are natural products such as talc (E533b) and bentonite (E558), and some are manufactured, such as silicon dioxide (E551) (chemically the same as sand but much purer), calcium silicate (E552) and sodium aluminosilicate (E554). Antimicrobials - prevent the growth of molds, yeasts and bacteria. Antioxidants - Keep foods from becoming rancid, browning, or developing black spots. Antioxidants also minimize the damage to some essential amino acids and the loss of some vitamins Azo dyes - Azo dyes are members of a chemical group comprising the following colorants: E 102 tartrazin, E 110 yellow-orange S, E 122 Azorubine, E 123 amaranth, E 124 cochineal red red A, E 151 brilliant black BN, E 180 Lithol rubine BK, E 128 red 2G, E 155 brown HT. Bentonite - From natural clay. Decolouriser, filter medium, emulsifier and anti-caking agent. Used in pharmaceutical agents for external use, edible fats and oils, sugar, wine. BHA & BHT -Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) is a phenolic antioxidant Phenolic antioxidants prevent rancidity of fats and oils in food by protecting against lipid oxidation. B vitamins - Niacin, thiamin and riboflavin. Vitamins added to or used to enrich bread, flour and cereals to help combat nutritional deficiencies Calcium hydroxide - Mineral salt made from lime as a firming and neutralising agent used in making beer, soap and glazing pretzels, infant formula as a mineral, cocoa products, sour cream, edible fats and oils, jam, tinned vegetables
Calcium Propionate - An inhibitor of molds and other microorganisms in foods, animal feed, tobacco, pharmaceuticals in butyl rubber to improve processability and Scorching resistance. Colorings -make food visually more attractive Copper sulphate - Mineral salt, anti-caking agent which is manufactured but occurs naturally and used for making azo dyes. Not to be taken on its own! D & C - Prefix meaning that a dye is FDA-approved for drugs and cosmetics. E 100 Turmeric - It is the natural color of the root of turmeric (Curcuma longa). It is the traditional ingredient of curry powder. It may be obtained by synthesis. Its color is yellow + Emulsifier - An additive used in the preparation and processing of foods, which is used to blend or mix ingredients together and also, to keep them from separating. Erythorbates - Erythorbates are food ingredients that inhibit the change of flavor and color in food when exposed to air, such as when a cut apple is exposed to air. Ext. D & C - Prefix signifying a dye that is FDA-approved for externally applied drugs and cosmetics only. Ferrous gluconate - Color-retention agent (derived from iron and glucose) used in olives, iron supplements (use sparingly). Food acids - They help maintain a constant sourness in food. FD & C - Prefix for a dye that is FDA-approved for foods, drugs and cosmetics. Flavor enhancers - enhance food palatability. Glazing agents - They give a shiny appearance or provide a protective coating to a food. Glucono delta-lactone - Food acid, artificial sweetener base, acidity regulator. Made from glucose. Stops 'stone' formation during manufacture with milk and beer. Glycerine - Glycerine is an alcohol (glycerol) and is used as a preservative in the food industry, as well as a sweetener: it is very sweet, yet it contains no sugar. This makes it an ideal sweetener for patients who cannot take sugar, such as the increasing number of Candida sufferers.
Humectants - Used to prevent dried fruit from drying out. Iodine - Added to salt to prevent a goiter, an iodine-deficiency condition. Iron - Added to foods to help prevent anemia and other iron-deficiency diseases. Lecithin - An emulsifier, or mixing agent, that helps fat and water stay together. Lecithin is present in egg yolks and milk; it aids mixing in mayonnaise and ice cream. Magnesium chloride - Mineral salt, firming agent. Magnesium is an essential mineral. Used in foods and pharmaceuticals. Magnesium oxide - Alkali, neutraliser and anti-caking agent. It can be found in frozen dairy products, butter, canned peas, cocoa products, medications. Used as a medical laxative. Mono- and Dyglycerides - Emulsifiers present in bread, margarine and peanut butter. MSG (monosodium glutamate) - A flavor enhancer derived from beet sugar. MSG is manufactured through a process of protein hydrolysis. When a product is 99% pure MSG, the product is called "monosodium glutamate" by the FDA and must be labeled as such. However, when a hydrolyzed protein contains less than 99% MSG, the FDA does not require that the MSG be identified. "Autolyzed yeast," "hydrolyzedsoy protein," and "sodium caseinate," are examples of names givento hydrolyzed proteins on food labels. MSG is found in most soups, salad dressings, and processed meats; in some crackers, bread, canned tuna fish, most frozen entrees, ice cream, and frozen yogurt. It is often used in "low fat" foods to make up for the flavor lost when fat is reduced or eliminated. Natamycin - Natamycin (it is also called pimaricin) is an antibiotic used in infections of mouth,foot and genitals.It is employed in food industry to treat the shell of cheese. Resistance against this antibiotic will soon be established in bacteria coming in contact with it.His use should therefore be forbidden in food industry Nitrites. (1) Inhibit the growth of bacterial spores that cause botulism, a deadly food-borne illness. (2) Are color enhancements of cured meat, poultry, and fish products. Nitrates react with secondary amines to form nitrosamines Phenolic antioxidants - They prevent rancidity of fats and oils in food by protecting against lipid oxidation. Potassium sorbate - the potassium salt of sorbic acid. It is much more soluble in water than the acid. Potassium sorbate will produce sorbic acid once it is dissolved in water and is the most widely used food preservative in the world. It is effective up to pH 6.5 but effectiveness increases as the pH decreases. Potassium sulphates - Mineral salt, anti-caking agent for beer, pharmaceuticals, salt substitute. No known adverse effects, but large doses can cause severe gastrointestinal bleeding. Propellants - gases which help propel food from a container. Red #3 - Though FDA viewed Red No. 3 cancer risks as small--about 1 in 100,000 over a 70-year lifetime--the agency banned provisional listings because of Delaney directives. At the same time, Red No. 3 has "permanent" listings for food and drug uses that are still allowed although the agency has announced plans to propose revoking these uses as well. For now, Red No. 3 can be used in foods and oral medications. Products such as maraschino cherries, bubble gum, baked goods, and all sorts of snack foods and candy may contain Red No. 3.
Red #40 - FD and C Red #40: Allura Red AC. Newest color. Used widely in the cosmetics industry. Approved in 1971. Allied Chemical has an exclusive patent on it. It is substituted for FD and C Red #4 in many cosmetics, food and drug products. Permanently listed because like the producers of "temporary" colors, this producer supplied reproductive data. However, many American scientists feel that the safety of Red # 40 is far from established, particularly because all of the tests were conducted by the manufacturer. Therefore, the dye should not have receive a permanent safety rating. The National Cancer institute reported that p-credine, a chemical used in preparation of Red #40, was carcinogenic in animals. The FDA permanently listed Red #40 for use in foods and ingested drugs but only temporarily listed it for cosmetics and externally applied drugs. See also Azo Dyes and FD and C colors. Sorbitol - A polyol (sugar alcohol), bulk sweetener found in numerous food products. In addition to providing sweetness, it is an excellent humectant and texturizing agent. Sodium Benzoate and Benzoic Acid - These two compounds are related because sodium benzote produces benzoic acid once it is dissolved in water. Benzoic acid is the compound with the antimicrobial properties, and is found naturally in cranberries, prunes, greengage plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves and apples. Sodium carbonates - Mineral salt, adjusting and modifying agent in the process of malting beer, baking soft and fizzy drinks, medications. No known adverse effects in small quantities. Sorbates - This family of compounds is available as sorbic acid, potassium sorbate, sodium sorbate or calcium sorbate. Sorbic acid is the compound with the antimicrobial properties but its salts (sorbates) are used in many cases due to differences in solubility. Stabilizers - They maintain the uniform dispersion of substances in a food. Sulfites - Sulfites are used as antioxidants to prevent discoloration of light-colored fruits and vegetables, such as dried apples and dehydrated potatoes. They are also used in wine-making because they inhibit bacterial growth but do not interfere with the desired development of yeast. Stearic acid - Saturated fatty acid, possibly of pig origin, cascarilla bark extract or vegetable fats. Anti-caking agent in chewing gum, confectionary, butter or vanilla flavouring for drinks, artificial sweeteners. Talc - Linked to stomach cancer, typical products are polished rice, chocolate, confectionary, icing sugar, noodles, medicinal tablets Thickeners and vegetable gums - They help improve texture and maintain uniform consistency. Vitamin D - Commonly added to milk, to prevent the childhood bone disease known as rickets, which is caused by a vitamin D deficiency. An excess of vitamin D causes abnormally high blood concentrations of calcium which can eventually cause severe damage to the bones, soft tissues, and kidneys. It is almost always associated with forms of vitamin D requiring a doctor's prescription. Yellow #5. This dye is used to add color to a large number of items, such as wool, silk, sheepskins, furs, the plastic used in some cloth and containers (nylon, polyesters, and poly methyl-methacrylate), foods, personal products (soap, deodorants, cosmetics) and drugs. One reason people use it so much is that it dissolves easily in water.

Notes on Breads Breads are divided into two categories. Category is determined by leavening agent used: 1) yeast2) quick Leavening agent – ingredient that makes the bread rise – Examples: Baking powder Baking soda Yeast Yeast breads – 6 essential ingredients Main proteins in flour: Yeast is a plant (fungus). In or to develop, it requires.... (Salt has a tendency to retard the growth of yeast) 1) Flour – makes framework 2) Water – dissolves other ingredients 3) Shortening – makes bread tender 4) Yeast – allows for leavening 5) Salt – adds flavor 6)Sugar – allows browning and adds flavor Glutenin & Gliaden Food = sugar &Warmth (110 – 120 ) &Liquid (to activate) Chemical leaveners When combined with water & mixed, these proteins form ‘gluten’; the structure of breads!
Grains should be stored in air tight containers to keep out moisture, dust, and these common critters:
Grains Test… December ________ What to know: Muffin Method Yeast (what it needs to grow, fermentation) Steps in making a yeast bread Differences between quick & yeast breads
Two main type of mixtures… Both are the raw form of a baked or fried good. Either can contain yeast or chemical leaveners. Batters ~ more liquid Pour Batter Can be for coating fried foods. Can easily pour out of a spout, like pancakes & funnel cake. Drop Batter Often dropped by spoonfuls, like muffins Doughs ~ more solid Have a thicker consistency. Can be rolled, shaped, cut like pie crust, braided rolls, pizza crust It doesn’t spread out when removed from the bowl in its raw form
Words & phrases to know: kneading: fermentation: punching down: shape dough: “oven spring:” test for doneness: cool: Release carbon dioxide; reduce size of holes in bread; use only a light coating of flour Occurs as yeast grows (warm place – 85 degrees) Use fist to eliminate air bubbles – This is done to avoid stretching dough. many variations available Preheat oven near the end of second rising time – bread is placed in hot oven and gets larger immediately Tap bottom of loaf with wooden spoon – listen for hollow sound; this indicates bread is done. On wire rack so bread does not become soggy
Procedure for yeast bread preparation: Dissolve yeast in warm (110 F) liquid Add sugar, salt, and fat. (shortening doesn’t need to melt) Add yeast; stir. Add half the flour. Beat with wooden spoon until smooth. Add enough of remaining flour so dough is not too sticky to knead. (Avoid too much flour for good consistency.) Let dough stand 5 – 10 minutes. Knead 8 – 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn dough so top is coated with shortening. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until double in bulk. Punch down shape, let rise again…. This is called PROOFING! Bake
How much sugar is in your cereal? Sugar is going to be listed in grams on the nutritional label. 4 grams of sugar = 1 teaspoon of sugar If your sugar had 14 grams of sugar, you would divide 14 by 4. The answer would be 3 ½ teaspoons of sugar per serving. Directions: 1.Figure out how much sugar is in one serving. 2.If you eat more than one serving, figure out what 1.5, 2, or 2.5 times the serving amount is to get a realistic view of how much sugar you’re really getting. 3.If you also add sugar to your cereal, you’ll have to add that on as well. 4.Share with your group which cereals have the most & least amount of sugar! Most nutritionists & dentists are recommending that you choose cereals that contain 6 grams or less of sugar per serving.
Top 10 WORST CEREALS!!! How much sugar is too much? Consumption of “added (free) sugars” includes: table sugar (refined, processed sugars from cane, beet - sucrose - added to foods by the manufacturer, cook or consumer) corn sugar (glucose) corn syrup high-fructose corn syrup commonly added to fruit juices sugars naturally present in fruit juices honey, and other syrups, like molasses and maple syrup A report released in 2006 by the World Health Organization (WHO) urges people to limit their daily consumption of free (added) sugars to less than 10 percent of their total energy intake (Diet Nutrition and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases; TRS916). This recommendation adds up to approximately 12 teaspoons (48 grams) of added (free) sugar a day based on an average 2000-calorie diet. ***So, if I'm eating a 1300 calorie a day diet, that means I should limit those added sugars (like the one in the oatmeal) to about 26g. Yikes - that adds up fast if you eat any kind of processed food or condiment! http://www.care2.com/greenliving/top-10- worst-cereals.html?page=1

Three types of quick bread mixtures: 1. ex. 2.ex. 3.ex. Pour batter Drop batter Dough Funnel cake, pancakes Shortcakes, rolled biscuits Many muffins What is the ‘muffin method’ for mixing ingredients? Measure the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine beaten eggs with milk & oil or melted fat. Pour the liquid mixture in the well. Stir the batter just until the dry ingredients are moistened. When is the ‘muffin method’ used? Usually used for making muffins, waffles, pancakes, popovers, and some coffee cakes. Characteristics of high-quality muffins: Has a thin, evenly browned crust. Top is symmetrical, but it looks rough. When broken apart, the texture is uniform, and the crumb is tender & light. Characteristics of under-mixed muffins: Low volume Flat top The crumb is coarse Characteristics of over-mixed muffins: Peaked top & pale, slick crust. When broken, narrow, open areas (tunnels) are visible
