Successful GF baking requires two significant changes to wheat-based baking: gluten is the “glue” or “stickiness” that keeps baked goods together; without gluten, other substances must be used as the glue. Dori discusses the pros, cons, and best usages for all. The second modification is pH. All wine and beer makers know that a proper pH range is crucial for good yeast growth. Baked goods also use yeast, and bread yeast has been selected by humans over thousands of to perform best in the pH range naturally present in wheat flour doughs. GF ingredients typically yield a dough in a different pH range. By modifying the pH of the dough, you can help your yeast to thrive.
