Phytic acid has been considered to be an antinutrient due to its ability to bind minerals and proteins, either directly or indirectly, thus changing their solubility, functionality, absorption, and digestibility. In this study, the influence of the flour type (type 500, type 850, and whole meal flour) and three different breadmaking procedures (direct, indirect, and with sourdough addition) on phytic acid was investigated. The results showed that the flour type influenced the phytic acid…

Effect of Natural Phytase, Fermentation, and Baking Processes on Phytate Degradation in Wheat Bread Manufactured from Local Mills Flour

     The present study aims to investigate the effect of wheat natural phytase, fermentation and baking processes in the destruction of phytic acid during the process of making wheat bread for some

Changes in Phytate Content in Whole Meal Wheat Dough and Bread Fermented with Phytase-Active Yeasts

The degradation of inositol hexakisphosphate (IP6) was evaluated in whole meal wheat dough fermented with baker’s yeast without phytase activity, different strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (L1.12

The Estimation of Iron, Zinc, Phytic Acid Contents and Their Molar Ratios in Different Types of Bread and Rice Consumed in Halabja City, Iraqi Kurdistan

A total of 10 samples involving five bread and five rice types and five cooked rice were selected. The iron and Zn contents were analyzed using an Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrophotometer

Effect of Using Lactobacillus Brevis IBRC-M10790 and Baker’s Yeast on Phytate Degradation of Sourdough and Barbari Bread

The possible use of Lactobacillus brevis IBRC-M10790 with degrading phytase activity was investigated in sourdough and Barbari bread –using 20 and 30% of sourdough in the formulation- in order to

Impact of Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolites produced during fermentation on bread quality parameters: A review

More attention should be paid on how yeast impacts flavor, shelf life, color, and the nutritional value of baked products, in a similar way to which yeast strains are selected in the wine and brewing industries.

Reduction of phytic acid during breadmaking of whole-meal breads

Cereal Chem. 69(3):266-270 Reduction of phytate was studied in model dough systems using whole(up to 550 C) phytic acid concentrations were less than 8 and 4% of original grain coarse meals or flours

Reduction in the Levels of Phytate During Wholemeal Bread Making; Effect of Yeast and Wheat Phytases

Abstract No difference in wheat phytase activity was observed when different types of acid were used to adjust the pH of wholemeal wheat flour suspensions to pH 5·0, the optimum for wheat phytase.

Moderate decrease of pH by sourdough fermentation is sufficient to reduce phytate content of whole wheat flour through endogenous phytase activity.

An in vitro trial shows that a slight drop of the pH is sufficient to reduce significantly the phytate content of a wholemeal flour and highlights the predominance of wheat phytase activity over sourdough microflora phyt enzyme activity during moderate sourd Dough fermentation.

Phytic acid in health and disease.

The ability of PA to chelate minerals has been reported to have some protective effects, such as decreasing iron-mediated colon cancer risk and lowering serum cholesterol and triglycerides in experimental animals, and certain inositol phosphates, which may be derived from PA, have a function in second messenger transduction systems.
