Understaning Soy Lecithin

 I haven’t had a lot of luck at the grocery store finding a loaf that we really liked so I thought that I would try making my own.

Gluten-free baking is entirely different from baking with traditional flours.  Gluten in traditional flours makes the dough elastic or chewy which is what gives it the normal texture you expect from bread.  

Because there is no gluten in gluten-free flours, the bread has an entirely different texture. Traditional loaves also rise more than this allergy-friendly bread because the gas is trapped when the gluten strands are formed which causes the bread to rise.  That means it doesn’t rise like traditional baked goods.

This product presentation was made with AAWP plugin.

This is an ingredient in many gluten-free baked goods. It is a natural chemical that is found in plants and animals that makes up cell membranes. 

This supplement helps with the emulsification of the fats in recipes that use it.  That helps baked goods remain softer by retaining more moisture.

If you have ever tried allergy friendly bread in the past, you may have noticed that it is much drier than traditional baked goods.  This supplement helps with that problem.

You can buy it right here and get started baking this recipe.

For a traditional wheat bread recipe, try my bread machine wheat bread with honey.

How can I learn more about emulsification?

You can learn more about emulsification by using a Molecular Mixology Kit which includes this supplement as well as sodium alginate, and calcium lactate.  These are natural texturing agents that can be used to make any dish or drink more fun.

    • I am not sure.I have never tried liquid. It can't hurt to try once just maybe adjust the liquid down slightly.
  1. Very interesting, I've heard some conflicting things about soy lecithin, in particular that most of it comes from GM crops and is extracted using chemical solvents, so if this is an issue for people it might be good to look for organic lecithin. Thanks so much for sharing this on Waste Not Want Not Wednesday, I've pinned it :)
      • I buy Sunflower Lecithin powder, Non-GMO from Swanson. I would think you could interchange the granules and powder. Mix the powder with the dry ingredients first.
  2. This looks really yummy. I don;t have issues with gluten but when I've tried alternatives I have found it to be too doughy. This looks like it would be a good taste. 
  3. Okay I have to try this. I went Gluten Free a month ago now and I've been miserable without some form of bread. I cut it all out completely. This bread actually still looks moist unlike other gluten free I have seen.
  4. I know a lot of people who can only eat soy-free products and then sounds like a yummy one!  Thanks for sharing this recipe.
  5. Through the pictures you can see this bread is actually soft. My mother in law has celiac so sometimes she makes me try her baked good finds and some have that heavy feeling and grainy texture. Thanks for the recipe....will definitely share it with my MIL. :)
  6. I love homemade bread and really like your Gluten Free bread recipe. I will have to try to make this. I bet it tastes so delicious and right out of the oven is the best! Thanks for the recipe!
