Fractionation and reconstitution studies of Cl2-treated and untreated cake flours indicate that the starch fraction is responsible for the improved baking performance of Cl2-treated flours. Although the fractionated and reconstructed flours gave cakes with volume essentially equal to those obtained from the control (unfractionated) flours, the grain of cakes from reconstituted flours was much poorer than the controls. In this study, cakes from reconstituted flours with volume and grain essentially equal to the unfractionated flour were obtained by extracting flours with hexane before wet-fractionation and using a single-stage mixing procedure with a highly emulsified shortening system.
