Essential ingredients such as baking powder, sugar and tapioca starch are blended into the mix for added convenience and quicker preparation. Also included is a precisely calculated amount of xanthan gum, an ingredient that performs the structural role that well-developed gluten does in wheat-based dough and batter.
Baking without gluten creates the need for a replacement structural element, usually xanthan gum or guar gum, as gluten’s function in baking is primarily structural. Its network of interconnected protein strands is instrumental in capturing the gases created by leavening agents like baking powder or soda.
Gluten’s protein strands are formed when water is added to wheat flour, allowing the glutenin and gliadin proteins to combine. These strands then begin to trap the gases released by the leavening agent, allowing the dough to rise.
