    The name of the protein that helps to make bread dough stretchy and elastic is?

    • A.

      Glucose

    • B.

      Glycerine

    • C.

      Gluten

    Correct Answer
    C. Gluten
    Explanation
    Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains. It is responsible for giving bread dough its stretchy and elastic texture. When gluten is mixed with water, it forms a network of proteins that trap air bubbles, allowing the dough to rise and give bread its light and fluffy texture. Without gluten, bread would be dense and crumbly. Therefore, gluten is the correct answer for the protein that helps make bread dough stretchy and elastic.
