Forty-six strains of sourdough lactic acid bacteria were screened for proteolytic activity and acidification rate in gluten-free (GF) flours. The sourdough cultures consisted of Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis LS40 and LS41 and Lactobacillus plantarum CF1 and were selected and used for the manufacture of GF bread. Fermentation occurred in two steps: (i) long-time fermentation (16 h) and (ii) fast fermentation (1.5 h) using the previous fermented sourdough as inoculum (ca. 43%, wt/wt) with… 
Effect of Controlled Fermentation of Sourdough Containing Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus brevis on Phytate Content in Dough and Bread
Results showed that controlled fermentation of whole wheat sourdough have significant effect on reduction of phytate and increasing the bioavailability of bread minerals.
From wheat sourdough to gluten-free sourdough: a non-conventional process for producing gluten-free bread
Summary Gluten-free (GF) sourdough was prepared from wheat sourdough and analysed both in fresh (GFS) and dried forms (DGFS). The gluten content in each GF sourdough sample was <20 mg kg−1. The
Genome-Assisted Characterization of Lactobacillus fermentum, Weissella cibaria, and Weissella confusa Strains Isolated from Sorghum as Starters for Sourdough Fermentation
The results of this study suggest a potential application of the selected starters in sorghum composite bread and should be validated with data from large-scale pilot tests conducted in industrial bakeries.
Functional and Technological Aspects of Sourdough Fermentation with Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis
The functional aspects of sourdough fermented by L. sanfranciscensis are demonstrated such as offering alternative bakery products for coeliac patients, diabetics or consumers having allergy to the bakery products fermented with baker’s yeast that are known as anti-S.


Textural comparisons of gluten-free and wheat-based doughs, batters, and breads
ABSTRACT Studies were conducted with two newly developed gluten-free bread recipes. One was based on corn starch (relative amount 54), brown rice (25), soya (12.5), and buckwheat flour (8.5), while
Gluten contamination in oat products and products naturally free from gluten
The level of contamination in oat products and products naturally free from gluten was in most cases low and the results regarding oats can be compared to those of such cereals as maize, rice, buckwheat and millet.
Sensory Evaluation of Wholemeal Bread from Ecologically and Conventionally Grown Wheat
The purpose of the project was to study how conventional and ecological farming systems and different dough kneading intensity affected the baking properties of wholemeal flour, and how those
Dietary guidelines and implementation for celiac disease.
This paper summarizes a review of scientific studies using the gluten-free diet, nutritional risk factors, controversial elements of the diet, and its implementation in treating celiac disease and indicates no differences in patients choosing a strict wheat starch-containing, gluten- Free diet vs. a naturally gluten- free diet.
Future therapeutic options for celiac disease
Oral enzyme supplementation is designed to accelerate gastrointestinal degradation of proline-rich gluten, especially its proteolytically stable antigenic peptides, and complementary strategies aiming with activation of gluten-reactive T cells include the inhibition of intestinal tissue transglutaminase activity to prevent selective deamidation of gluten peptides.
Innovative approach to low‐level gluten determination in foods using a novel sandwich enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay protocol
A new generation of a robust sandwich R5‐ELISA with good reproducibility and repeatability is presented, which is equally sensitive to barley, wheat and rye prolamins and is compatible with the quantitative cocktail extraction procedure for heat‐processed foods.
A prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to establish a safe gluten threshold for patients with celiac disease.
The ingestion of contaminating gluten should be kept lower than 50 mg/d in the treatment of CD, and no significant differences in the IEL count were found between the 3 groups.
Oats induced villous atrophy in coeliac disease
Oats were well tolerated by most patients but several reported initial abdominal discomfort and bloating, and five of the patients showed positive levels of interferon γ mRNA after challenge, some concerns therefore remain with respect to the safety of oats for coeliacs.
