Its specific adaptability ti bread making is due to its elastic, cohesive nature that enables it to retain the bubbles of carbon dioxide evolved by leaving agents; this also imparts to doughs their characteristic dilatant properties. This behavior is due to disulfide crosslinks and hydrogen bonding between the proteins or their constituent amino acids.
