Addition of reducing agents, vitamin C and citric acid during wheat conditioning and their effects on the quality characteristics of the corresponding flour and dough

The most important component of wheat proteins is gluten, and the most prominent bonds in gluten are disulfide bonds, which bind glutenin subunits. Therefore, oxidizing and reducing agents with great effects on the thiol-disulfide system of the dough can change the mechanical and rheological properties of the dough. Due to the positive effects of ascorbic acid on the properties of the dough, it is used as a flour improver. To weaken the structure of the dough, reducing agents such as cysteine-L can be used, and by adding organic acids, increasing the specific volume and decreasing the moisture, the pH and hardness are observed in comparison with the control. This study is performed to evaluate the effect of adding reducing compounds, vitamin C and organic acids during the conditioning of wheat and their effect on the yield of the resulting pulp.
