On Bleaching Flour.
Dr. Alway, Chemist of the Nebraska
Experiment Station, has Issued a bul
letin dealing with the subject of the
bleaching of flour In relation to public
. Tho bleaching of flopr Is very gen
erally practised In Nebraska. Dr.
Alway's conclusions may be summed
up as follows:
1. Bleaching has apparently no ef
fect on' the bread-making qualities
other than to produce a. whlted loaf,
2. Bleaching leaves compounds ,of
nitrous ' held In the flouf averaging
about4.6 parts, of a nltfjto to X mil
Hqri" parts of, flour. , ' .
3. This amount Is eliminated
In1 the process of bread making, leav
ing the quantity In bread 'so small as
tobe entirely nellglble.
