Recent research progress in bread baking technology

  • W. Seibel


It is believed that the Egyptians discovered bread baking.1 Mural paintings show that sourdough was already used in Egypt as early as the 13th century bc. Findings from eastern Mediterranean regions suggest that bread baking was already known around 1800bc. From Egypt, the art of breadmaking came to Israel and then to Greece. Around 776bc the conclusion of the Olympic Games was celebrated with a feast that included bread made from wheat and barley. In Greece leavening of the bread was achieved with sourdough or soda; a special bread cult existed and Demeter, the goddess of bread, was revered.
