As early hunter-gathers settled into agriculture society, they learn how to transform various grains into bread. This simple food required only grind grain into flour or meal, water or another liquid yo mix it into the dough, and a means of baking or cooking it. When wheat flour is kneaded with liquid, the gluten proteins absorb water to form an elastic dough that traps gas from the fermented yeast; bubbles of carbon dioxide are formed, resulting in the light texture. Flavour and texture are also influenced by the type of liquid mixed into the dough- plain water, milk, beer, and fruit juice are common choices. Sugar and honey may be added to “feed” the yeast and make the bread rise at a faster rate; it also results in a moister product. A small amount of salt is needed to strengthen the gluten and to temper the rate at which the yeast multiplies. Butter or other fat is often added to flavour commercial bread; it also makes pastry like bread, such as croissants, rich and flaky. The growing popularity of international bread is reflected in the many types sold in supermarkets, delis, and bakeries. Some common bread includes the following: Bagel, Brioche, Chapati, Ciabatta, Cornbread, English muffin, Focaccia, Matzo, Multigrain, Naan, Pita, Pumpernickel, Quick bread, Rye, Sourdough, Tortillas.
