Modern bakeries require a quality leavening agent for continued success
Using the proper leavening agent is not only about preventing spoilage of the product, it is also about maintaining appeal. The proper agent will assist in the prevention of foodborne bacteria while an item awaits purchase, thereby ensuring a long shelf life. However, choosing a good leavening agent also involves maintaining the quality of that product after purchase. Flavour and consistency are just as important as long term conservability in terms of quality with production baked goods.
