Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
(Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid))  At first thought, it might seem strange to include vitamin C powder as a recipe ingredient; however, vitamin C has been found to be a dough enhancer when used in conjunction with Ginger and Soya Lecithin.  The ascorbic acid strengthens the gluten bonds so that the rising dough is better able to retain the gas bubbles.  The ginger accelerates the yeast, and the soya lecithin acts as an emulsifier. Typically, for every cup of flour, add 1 tsp. soya lecithin, 1/16 tsp. ground ginger, and 1/16 tsp. ascorbic acid powder.  We purchased our vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) in the health food store.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
