Review Paper


The market for gluten-free products is increasing. Owing to better diagnostic methods, more and more people are identified to have coeliac diseases. Production of bakery products that do not harm these people is a big challenge for bakers and cereal scientists in the twenty-first century. The use of different cereals and flours makes it necessary to find possibilities to take over the task of gluten by other flour ingredients, by the addition of different components, by different flour and dough treatment or by changing the method of baking. The purpose of this review is to give an overview about the various possibilities to increase the baking quality of gluten-free bakery products, increasing their water-binding capacity, uniform the crumb structure and increase the final bread volume. All the listed methods and ingredients are already in single use helpful to increase the quality in gluten-free bread production.
