Acidification leads to the solubility and eventual hydrolysis of mineral salts bound with phytate, and ultimately leading an increased bioavailability of dietary fibre found in rye. Adding vinegar (acetic acid) is essentially increasing the acidity of your dough. I'm no scientist so I would be interested to read your explanation of this too... EDIT: You'd be interested in my Italian starter as the discards that I've put into food waste are nearly a week old and it's still dough and not soup. Then, let it stand for five minutes. same 30 degrees but push refreshment times to 48h. The water in my area is slightly alkaline (7.2-8.2) so this amount of vinegar seems to put the dough into that "slightly acidic" enviroment that yeast thrive in, but isn't nearly enough acid to give the dough a sour flavor. Thanks ars pistorica for a very informative post! Longer fermentation will generate an acidic environment over time, so it will be interesting to read what you find about any potential role for vinegar, or ascorbic acid. Your particular context was Gluten Free Baking. Hi Bunjie, Vinegar [acetic acid] is primarily added to commercial bread dough as a preservative, as it lowers the pH of the dough. Increasing the acidy slows down the fermentation process (it doesn’t stop it altogether), which gives gluten better opportunity to form. With that preferment I had to raise  hydratation of the dough to 78% overall and the bread came out MUCH better than I ever thought possible with that flour. I often find that the same additives work for gluten-free dough as well. Thus, it’s used to treat yeast and other fungal infections in the body. What types of vinegar can you use for baking bread, and how does it work with yeast? Mix it up. In fact, ascorbic acid is an ingredient in "quick rise" yeast because it helps to activate it. Vinegar is acetic acid. Premature strength - What kind of time frame are we talking about? Yeast likes a neutral to slightly acidic environment. Acid does not impact positively on baker's yeast fermentation. Read more about me and Breadopedia story here. nothing to do with flavour. Adding too much acid can halt the yeast’s fermentation too much. And as a professional baker the thought of vinegar in sourdough makes me cringe. While not exactly bread, gingerbread cookies are a holiday favorite that you prepare by adding vinegar to the wheat flour, vanilla, butter, sugar, cloves, molasses, nutmeg, sugar, and corn syrup. Obviously it was sour as hell, as I intended. understand that some vinegar, like in traditional straight 100% rye doughs, is needed to destabilise proteins to allow them to more efficiently bind in the gel matrix. Yeast activity is encouraged through the addition of yeast foods; these being chemicals such as Ammonium Sulphate, Ammonium Chloride and Ammonium Phosphate. (eg, lactic leads to more repression in glucose consumption). I use a very small amount, which is supposed to be at a level that is tasteless, but I'm finding that sometimes the taste comes through too much and I'm thinking of trying something else. Manufacturers produce it by distilling alcoholic spirits from corn and rye. It has a sweeter flavor than white vinegar. Finally, you can swap vinegar for wine by diluting 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water. Hi everyone, I have not been around for quite some time and hope everyone is still baking happily away. Yeast is a leavening agent. lb sf should drop out but plantarum and fermentum will stay. claiming that low-protein rye flour is claimed to be better for baking rye bread, for unexplained reasons. If you have soft water in your kitchen, it can weaken gluten. I was very surprised, i could never imagine that a rye preferment could even *improve* the rheology of a dough. Actually, coagulation occurs almost immediately! Neither type leave a vinegary aftertaste behind when you use it in bread or cake recipes. I have done recipe comparisons - usually on accident when I forgot the vinegar - and the loaves often didn't even work without the vinegar. So would any addition of vinegar have an immediately negative impact on yeast activity, or could one add a very small amount before yeast activity became compromised by the acetic acid to any sort of extent? You proof the yeast with sugar and water. It should also favor the release of dyacetil, if I'm not mistaken, that I've been hunting for a lot of time without success (to mimic a buttery flavour). All acid types, though, will eventually display a deteriorative effect on gluten, if left long enough, which is the reason vinegar is often included in unyeasted feuilleté doughs, as it helps extensibility. Too much vinegar may kill yeast, but just the right amount can result in a wonderful, soft, flavorful bread. Just add one tablespoon of milk and vinegar to a measuring cup. Once I used a recipe that called for abscorbic acid, but I couldn't really taste the difference. It took me awhile to find the actual percentage, but try .75% citrate (per 100% flour), which will effectively force a co-metabolism of both maltose and citrate, with the end result being very low acid levels. I was looking in particular at industrially-manufactured bread, which utilises an improver or dough conditioner made up of a number of chemicals and enzymes, each of which is added for a specific purpose. What To Do With Imperfect Sourdough Bread So, a little vinegar improves your bread’s quality. Doing this makes the bread softer and better-tasting. Let’s find out. Yeast like an acidic environment, so the vineger is stimulating for them and makes them more active. But there's nothing wrong with a little light experimentation in the kitchen. Acidification in rye doughs does more than I have mentioned, and even more than you have mentioned. what protein sources are you using in your formula? Acid also has a strengthening effect on the dough as you have noted, so vinegar does can also be added for this reason too. You then shape the dough into cookies and bake. To increase elasticity? Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. this is also a principal concern for gf bakers. After that, you can use it as you would buttermilk. The comments about dough strengthening made by AP are key. Acids acting as an oxidising agent is universally accepted; just Google it. Many thanks for all your comments on what vinegar does to dough. It's only in recent times that wetter starters are being used. Most bread recipes that use vinegar call for no more than 1 teaspoon per 1- to 2-pound loaf. As the final dough ferments and proves the acidity increase and the dough becomes visibly stronger. Log in or register to post comments; ananda. Gel formation means nothing without destabilised proteins (present in minor but sufficient levels in rye flour for this purpose), which help form a more complete air-trapping network.
