It started last night Mark. Is a mainstream channel so unlikely to be missed given the paltry programmes we’re being offered because of Covid. There is a discussion about the snotty eggs on offer elsewhere.

Badger's Mate wrote:Surely the yeast ferments the sugar, so unless added in significant excess, it isn't sugar in the final bread. It's just faster than fermenting flour, and so can make bread more quickly, just as commercial yeasts work more quickly than wild ones.

Referring to this again, a news item (I was half asleep) was about a terrific breakthrough in learning how proteins "folded", the 3-D shape they have at an elemental level. Seemingly this will enable specific targeting of elements to attempt to "correct" them if awry in the case of dementia etc.

However, the scientist explained that if you chew a piece of bread for ages without swallowing it, your saliva components will bring out the sugar in the starch so it will taste sweeter.

I can't remember why that analogy in layman's speak was relevant to the breakthrough re folding proteins but it's a teensy bit above my pretty little head ;)

Yeasts (like us) can break down the starch in flour to sugars, and toasting releases some sugars, but I can't see why it would be relevant to protein structure, unless they are using amylase (the protein that converts starch to sugar) as a test specimen - which is quite likely since we have several slightly different ones, and looking at how the differences work might be useful

Well, according to The Food Programme today, the chocolate flake was invented in 1921 and the Mars bar in 1932.

My lovely Dad's favourite, Fry's chocolate cream, dates back to 1866.

I didn't realise they were so early.

Nadia's American Adventures! Starts on BBC One on Thursday 10 December at 8pm. After reading about the series, it sounds very interesting.

I thought that the first one was very good. Nadia certainly manages to bring something to such programmes that others don't.
