Effect of potassium bromate and ascorbic acid on rheological characteristics and bread making quality of Indian commercial wheat flours was studied. Ascorbic acid brought about greater change in the extensograph characteristics and improvement in the baking quality, as compared to potassium bromate. Soft wheat flour responded more than medium or hard wheat flours to improvers. The effect of potassium bromate on rheological characteristics was more pronounced, when pH of dough was lowered to less than 5.0. Potassium bromate and ascorbic acid brought about a greater improvement in milk bread as compared to other varieties such as plain, sugar, and fruit bread.
