Baking & Chemistry
by Jasmine McAlister
How does baking connect to social justice ?
Baking connects to social justice because with out leavening agents will baked goods still have the same meaning? If bread does not have leavening agents added to it then it will be flat and hard. Will people still want the bread? The same situation with cookies and cakes with out leavening agents they will be flat and hard. Will the birthday cake still have the same meaning if it is now just one big hard cookie? A one point in time during the Jewish Passover they are no allowed to let there bread rise.
Yeast is a natural leavener.It is a living simple organism.It’s existed naturally in air and soil and requires air, moisture and sugar or starch to grow and reproduce.
