I know there must be a science related Cooks Illustrated-style answer for this, but I can't seem t find any information on it.
Can any experienced bakers help me out with this? Does it have to do with providing extra food for the yeast?
Perhaps something in the crystalline sugar structure breaks down the husk of whole wheat to help form more gluten?
I really have no idea... and input would be appreciated.
