Ascorbic Acid

Ascorbic acid is an organic acid also known as Vitamin C and commonly used as an additive for flour. When added to flour, it acts as an oxidizing agent, which makes it easier to form the gluten network during kneading of the dough. When used with yeast, it acts as a nutrient and provides an acidic environment for the yeast so that it acts faster and longer.
