I had asked my parents to please bring me back some Meshaper Afiyah (literally meaning beautified baking??). I had read on some forums that this Israeli dough conditioner improves challah dough. Dvora uses it. So, anyway, after much searching, they found this container in a health food store.
But, what does the container say? Ingredients? Instructions?
I think the instructions for using it for bread are as follows: Mix 5 heaping teaspoons with a half cup of water for every kilo of flour.
Is this even regular dough conditioner or some kind of fiber additive?
Does anyone know??
Update: thanks to Risa (Isramom), I now know what this is: Fibrex sugar beet fiber, which is used as a health supplement and to improve moisture and general freshness retention in baked goods. It is useful in gluten free baking, as well. This is very cool.
