The functionality of wheat flour in bread depends on both the protein and starch components of the wheat. During mixing and dough development, wheat protein develops a gluten network which is responsible for maintaining dough structure during proving and the early stages of baking. As the temperature rises during the latter stages of baking, the gluten denatures and starch gelatinisation occurs. This is primarily responsible for the final structure and texture of baked bread.With gluten free bread systems, ingredients have to be identified which can contribute the functionality of both the gluten and the wheat starch to the bread system.
