AIB International Tip of The Week: Gluten Washing Test Results Explained | Global Milling

When bakers begin discussing flour quality, the conversation quickly turns to gluten. During mixing of wheat flour and water, gluten forms. Gluten becomes the elastic framework of dough; it entraps the gas produced by fermentation and results in leavened dough.  

Like other proteins, gluten becomes hard and dry on exposure to heat during baking (denaturation). Gluten denaturation, combined with starch gelatinisation, contributes to the structure of most baked products.
