    FUNCTIONAL BREADIn many countries, bread is a staple food product, and depending on the regional tradi-

    tions, bread products and their production techniques vary widely. The basic ingredientsare flour, water, yeast or other leavening agent, and salt (Sluimer, 2005). During bread

    making, the availability and levels of bioactive compounds in cereal grains can either

    decrease or increase. The interactions of ingredients are also important and affect thenutritional value of bread. Various ingredients can be used to improve processing ability of

    dough and the quality and nutritional value of the final product. Breads formulated with

    functional ingredients are becoming more important in the bakery industry, and functionalbreads are already available (Menrad, 2003). In August 2000, the Fazer Company in

    Finland made a request for plant sterol-enriched bakery products. The European Union

    Scientific Committee on Food confirmed with regard to the application of Fazer that theaddition of phytosterols to a wide range of bakery products was safe. In January 2006, the

    request was granted for rye bread 50% whole grain rye flour,

    In a study investigating DNA damage and its modulation by dietary and genetic factors insmokers, control bread consisted of the basic mixture with wheat flour, coarsely ground rye

    grain, malt flour, sourdough, apple fiber, salt, and wheat gluten (Table 27.1). Prebiotic breads

    were supplemented with inulin, linseed, and soy flours, whereas the antioxidant bread wasadditionally supplemented with the antioxidative ingredients selenium-rich wheat, tomato

    extract, as well as green tea and spice extract (Glei et al., 2005).

    Omega-3 fatty acids

    Yazawa et al. (2001) studied docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-supplemented breads, one of whichcontained 1 g DHA and 0.3 g of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (Table 27.2). Serum total

    cholesterol (TC) and triglyceride (TG) were significantly decreased 4 weeks following

    consumption (TC before and after ingestion, 232 and 222 mg/dl, respectively; TG before andafter ingestion, 204 and 147mg/dl, respectively) with a concurrent increase in serumDHA and

    EPA, suggesting that DHA-supplemented bread can be consumed every day and is clinically

    effective for lipid reduction.

    resulted in a significant increase in n-3 fatty acids, an increase in high-density lipoproteincholesterol, and a decrease in triglycerides, which may reduce the risk of ischemic heart disease

    (Liu et al., 2001).

    COMMERCIAL EXAMPLESOmega-3 bread, which is formulated to improve heart health, was launched in the United

    States by George Weston Bakeries. Grains & More Double Omega bread claimed to contain

    25 mg of n-3 EPA/DHA per slice. Other examples include Cali-Wraps, which are n-3-enriched tortilla wraps, and whole grain flax bread in Canada. In Australia, Up Omega-3

    bread, under George Westons TipTop brand, contains encapsulated fish oil. Westons Arnold

    brand (Horsham, PA) formulates its Smart & Healthy Omega-3 DHA/EPA bread with fishoil. Bread containing a concentrated hydroxytyrosol, Hytolive 2, is made by Spanish

    company Genosa R&D. The ingredient has been added to Puratos Nostrum brand bread,

    Common buckwheat has been used to substitute 15% of wheat flour to make buckwheat-enhanced wheat breads. Buckwheat-enhanced wheat bread has good antioxidant activity,

    reducing power, and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging ability, with unhusked

    buckwheat-enhanced wheat bread being the most effective. Overall, buckwheat-enhancedwheat bread has been suggested as a food with more effective antioxidant properties than

    unenhanced ones (Lin et al., 2009).

    A green tea extract (GTE) has been incorporated (50, 100, and 150 mg/100 g of flour) into

    bread as a source of tea catechins (Table 27.4). One piece of bread (53 g) containing 150mg of

    GTE/100 g of flour provides 28 mg of tea catechins, which is 35% of those infused from onegreen tea bag (2 g) (Wang and Zhou, 2004).

  • Grape seed extract (GSE), a well-known nutraceutical product, is an abundant source ofcatechins and proanthocyanidins with a strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging

    activity. Moreover, it shows other biological effects, such as inhibition of platelet aggregation

    and anti-inflammation and anti-ulcer activity. The change in antioxidant activity of breadswith added GSE has been investigated. Bread with added GSE had stronger antioxidant

    activity than bread without GSE, and increasing the level of GSE further enhanced theantioxidant capacity of the bread. However, thermal processing caused the antioxidant

    activity of the GSE added to bread to decrease by approximately 30e40%. The findings

    indicate that GSE-fortified bread is promising as a functional food with high antioxidantactivity (Peng et al., 2010).

    Mujoo and Ng (2003) studied bread baked from flour blended with immature wheat meal richin fructooligosaccharides and found that the overall quality of bread appeared to be accept-

    able, and the added fructooligosaccharides were retained after baking.
