The breadmaking process which has become fully automated through the use of bulk transportation, mechanical mixers, and conveyors, is discussed. During kneading process, air or gas is incorporated to carry out the mixing process. The bubbles form the nuclei for gas cells, which later expands as carbon dioxide from the fermentation process diffused into them. No new cells develop after the the mixing, as only subdivision of existing cells occurs during punching and molding operations.
