Bread Crumb

  • Raymond Calvel


Bread crumb is formed by the action of heat on bread dough, just as in the case of the crust. After the dough has been brought to full development by multiplication and expansion of the entrapped carbon dioxide gas cells, the heat of the oven raises the dough temperature to a level that causes gelatinization of the starch and coagulation of the gluten. This gives the crumb its final structure. Accompanying this change, but at a slightly higher temperature, the amylases present in the dough are destroyed.
