  1. Leavening agent

    A leavening agent is any one of a number of substances used in doughs and batters that causes a foaming action which lightens and softens the finished product. The leavening agent incorporates gas bubbles into the dough—this may be air incorporated by mechanical means, but usually it is carbon dioxide produced by biological agents, or by chemical agents reacting with moisture, heat, acidity, or other triggers. When a dough or batter is mixed, the starch in the flour mixes with the water in the dough to form a matrix, then gelatinizes and "sets"; the holes left by the gas bubbles remain.
