Anti-potato disease improver
Wheat grain, as almost any natural product, contains within itself the natural microflora, which is determined by the climatic conditions at which the grain is grown, how it is fertilized and stored.
Potato disease is mainly due to this natural microflora in grapes and in particular to Bacillus subtilis or Bacillus mesentericus. When grinding the grain, it is transferred to the resulting flour. In the process of baking bread, the bacteria are destroyed, but part of its spores can remain viable. The specific feature of potato disease is that its manifestation is most often visible to the user during the summer months when temperatures are noticeably higher, which is a prerequisite for activating it. The first sign of the disease is the appearance of a faint odor of the potato. It usually occurs from 24 hours to 3 days after the bread is baked, and the consumption of the product does not pose a health risk. At the next stage the bread center begins to stick, because the process starts from the inside out. In the course of the disease, the food medium turns yellow to brown to violet, has a severe unpleasant odor, and can cause slight food poisoning when consumed.
In general, potato disease in bread is a low risk to human health because it appears on the food to show visible signs that degrade its quality and make it unfit for consumption. It has no bearing on the baking properties of the flour and, unfortunately, the manufacturer most often understands its presence when the product for direct consumption is already in the hands of the customer.
