Surface-active ingredients emulsify the oil-and-water mixtures known as batters and doughs. Their activity enables proper blending of ingredients and protects against physical shocks caused by mechanical handling. These improvers also help sequester water to prevent weeping in frozen doughs, and they help form protein and starch complexes, thus softening crumb and lengthening shelf life.
