Chemists differ in opinion regardinff
tho primary cause of fermentation ; but it
ii known that leaven induces this action n
Jouh, and that alcohol and carbonic acid
arc formed thereby, and flour tvitv de
composed nnd passing off in the form of
these, substances. This is the rcnaon why
some hnro decried the iuo of leavened
bread, because, they said, it was formed
(by wasting ''soniu of the nutriment of tho
flour." Hut as nosio of the nutritious part
of tho flour ii driven off in fermentation,
only carbon and hydrogen respiratory
substances beinjy di.-persed, their loss is
" Compensated by the improved healthful
quality and pleasant taste of such bread,
liaised bread made of effervescing salts,
.such as salarnlns, is not m palatable, so
healthy, nor will it keep so long, as bread
raised by fermentation. The public has
' oftentimes been cajoled by persons pre
tending to niako bread which contained
. all tho aliment of the flour that passes olf
. as spirit in fermented bread. A moment s
- reflection will convinco any person that,
1 weight for weight, fermented breud must
1 contain the greatest amount of nutriment,
because unferinented bread contains a
greater amount of respiratory substances
- and as a conseq lenee, less of tho nu
tritious. Ono part of the philosophy of Iread
. making and it is to this feature we wish
V mort particularly to invite general ntten
1 tion is tho maintaining of the heat con-
. Btuntly above the toiling point of water.
Tho starch of flour is luaulluble in water
..at a temperature below 212 degrees; it
has to bo well boiled before it becomes
soluble, but when moistened with water
and exposed for a short time in an oven
to a heat of about illK) degrees I'uhren
" licit,' never below 212 degrees nt least,
its nature is changed ; it becomes dextrine,
I which is soluble in cold water. .The heat
v of every loaf of bread placed in an oven
, must bo exposed to 212 degrees Fahren
heit at least, or jt will not bo properly
baked, and camlbt be so easily digested,
" heavy, imperfectly baked bread is there
'..fare not only unpalatable, but also un
healthy. -Tho bakorsof Paris have a world-wide
celebrity for making beautiful fermented
bread. Their skill and science are moly
displayed in manageing the temperature
of their ovens ; they employ thermometers
