Damaged Starch

Is the starch in flour that is damaged during the milling process. It is important because enzymes in the flour work on the damaged starch to produce compounds that are converted to simple sugars for feeding the yeast during fermentation. It also contributes to the residual sugars in the dough at the time of baking to promote better crust browning.
