Making a perfect loaf of bread is a process that takes some time, from the few hours to make a quick yeasted bread up to 48 hours or more when working on slow fermented sourdough. It is usually a good idea to plan ahead slightly a bit, and in order to plan well, knowing some tips involved in the making this bread you are about to start, helps a lot.
What are the processes for making bread in a factory?
The main ingredients are flour, yeast, water, and other minor ingredients, mixed into a dough in a giant Stand mixer. The dough is then divided into loaves and undergo an initial rising process, which allows the dough to rise at a stable rate. It is then baked and sets inside a Bread Oven, until it is cooked right through the center or until the perfect color is achieved. Once cooled for about two hours, it is sliced and wrapped up, and then ready to go to the stores.
