Before entering to explain the procedure for making bread, I want to talk a little about it. Bread is a staple that is part of the diet and diet of many people, being consumed either at breakfast or snack.
It usually prepared by baking a dough, which has been made mainly with cereal flour, salt, and water. The mixture almost always contains yeast (the addition of this component causes the fermentation of the dough before baking; as a result, it provides a larger volume), making it more fluffy and tender.
The most commonly used cereal for making bread is wheat flour. However, other cereals such as corn, barley, rice, and rye also used. The best thing about making bread is that it allows us to play with the forms of it in the kitchen, since the dough is so malleable and can be shaped, either with various molds and kneading techniques, so you can decide what shape give it, either in a hoop, in braid, among others.
Nowadays, bread is one of those staple foods that you can find in any store, supermarket, or cafeteria since, as I was saying, it is essential in human food.
Although all is not good news, bread, despite being a very old food, an increasing percentage of the population suffers from some gluten-related disorder, causing certain diseases, which is why their treatment consists of a strict diet gluten-free. It is for this reason that in recent years we have seen gluten-free bread on the market.
