Fermentation & honey/sugar in yeast bread recipes

Howard_2 | Dec 11, 201302:05 PM

In yeast-raised breads, the yeasts digest the carb from the flour. If the dough contains a sugar, e.g. table sugar, honey, etc., isn't that digested ahead of the starch? So aren't yeast breads containing a sugar less sweet than you;d expect from the amount of sugar put in?

Does anyone know the biology of this stuff?
