Example text

The slow route to health Industrial bread is made far too fast. Old-time bakers knew that if you left dough to ferment for a long time in the right conditions, ‘acids’ would ‘ripen’ your mix and produce a moister crumb and better keeping quality, as well as that indefinable bread flavour. In Germany, Poland and Russia especially, the cultivation of lactic and acetic acids in traditional sourdough fermentation was valued for the flavour and digestibility of the local (mainly rye) breads. Most of us are rather amazed that mixing flour, yeast and water produces dough that rises and can be baked into light-textured bread.

We eat less than half as much bread as we did 45 years ago. Well before fads like the low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, people were abandoning bread, and not only because they could afford other foods. The startling possibility is that British consumers, without their knowledge, have been taking part in a flawed experiment. Back in the early 1960s, the national loaf was fundamentally redesigned. The flour and yeast were changed and a combination of intense energy and additives completely displaced time in the maturing of dough.

If not exactly beating bombs into ploughshares, they found a ready outlet for their chemicals in the intensive agriculture that was seen as the only way to feed rapidly growing urban populations. Grain varieties were bred to respond to heavy applications of soluble nitrogen, potash and phosphorus fertilisers. But such a regime produces flabby straw that falls over in wind or rain. So wheats with short straw were developed. Once hooked on soluble chemicals, the new varieties showed signs of succumbing more than before to fungal and pest attack.
