Re Emulsifier 491
Sorbitan monostearate is an emulsifier. This material coats yeast cells and protects the cells from damage by oxygen and assists in the rehydration of the yeast. It is plant-based and generally sourced from corn. Allergens are typically part of the protein structure of the organism, however the process used to produce sorbitol eliminates the plant protein. Sorbitan monostearate is not considered an allergen. It is listed in the FDA GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) list of ingredients for use in food products. Sorbitan monostearate is Kosher.

“The making of the flatbread is incredibly simple, especially if you have a stand mixer. All you need is a little time to allow it to prove. I get a lot of questions about the type of yeast I use. This is it here . Honestly it€™s the best yeast I€™ve ever used and can be mixed straight into the dry ingredients €“ no dissolving and waiting for it to foam. It never fails and I just keep the bag in the freezer and it stays incredibly fresh.
