Introduction

Ever wondered what’s in store-bought bread?

If not certified organic, which is rarely found, lower quality grains are used and can lack the essential nutrients.

The main goal of all industrial bread makers is to produce bread as cheap as possible to earn the highest profit neglecting the health of its consumers.

Adding to that, the number of preservatives used in this process to help boost the shelf life, which reduces the cost gradually. Some of these ingredients:

  1. High fructose corn syrup: very cheap preservative, made from corn and used widely. It has been linked to several problems mainly obesity, leading to diabetes, metabolic syndromes and boost the risk of heart diseases. Increases levels of bad cholesterols, which are deposited from childhood, increase in the adolescent phase, to block the arteries at adult ages.
  2. Dicalcium phosphate: (E 341) white odorless powder formed by a reactive combination of calcium oxide and phosphoric acid. Used in baked good as a stabilizer and emulsifier. Have so many side effects like constipation, decreased appetite, thirst, and dry mouth. And may cause allergy in a small percentage of people. But mostly it is linked to prostate cancer
  3. Soy lecithin: is a food additive that comes from several sources – one of them being soy. It is generally used as an emulsifier (stabilize processed food). It is made from genetically modified Soy and extracted via the addition of the chemical.
  4. Ammonium chloride and ammonium sulfate: it is considered toxic if inhaled and avoiding it is of high importance, it is not entirely dangerous but consuming it in high quantity can cause high blood pressure.
  5. Ethoxylated mono and diglycerides emulsifier: Approved in the United States and not permitted across European union, Australia and New Zealand.

Now you know that weird difficult to pronounce names are for a fact bad and should not be consumed by adults, how about children?

Our main Goal at Teenytinyco not to push mothers to entirely create everything at home, but to enlighten them of the importance of choosing homemade on store-bought food for the reasons mentioned above.

In addition, the amount of salt added to these breads is very high in comparison to international recommendations of Salt to every individual according to age and health issues as mentioned in (Honey whole wheat pizza dough recipe).

When I did this recipe I was looking for something easy to do, doesn’t take time and yet retain the softness of store bought bread.

Instructions

1
Done

Pre-heat your oven to 230°c. (heating the oven from the bottom side)

2
Done

Because you are using instant yeast, you don’t need to set it aside with water and honey until it proofs. You can directly add all ingredients together and mix very well until dough is formed (except the whole egg, and sesame seeds to be kept aside).

3
Done

Let it sit for around 20 min to allow the flour to hydrate from the water.

4
Done

Place the dough onto a floured work surface, using the heel of your hand knead the dough till the dough is smooth and elastic.

5
Done

Divide the dough into 7 or 8 equally measured tiny balls (around 100 grams each).

6
Done

Using the palm of your hand shape them into perfect circle shapes and add them on a silicone mat over an oven metal liner.

7
Done

Cover them with a towel and let them sit for about 5 min to rise.

8
Done

Wisk the whole egg with 1 Tbsp of water until fully incorporated and with a brush cover each circled dough.

9
Done

Sprinkle sesame on top of each dough, and onto the oven.

10
Done

Bake at 150°c for about 18-20 min. (make sure to place the oven liner on the top shelf, so it doesn’t burn the bottom of the dough).

11
Done

And voilà, perfect soft buns that can be used as a burger bun and much more.

The powder is more concentrated as qt of turmeric so qt should be less than the mentioned in the recipe! Depends how yellow u want it to be!

Yes you can, the only reason I added a bit of the unblanched organic white flour to soften the dough a bit but definitely u can go for only whole wheat.
