Crispy corn breadsticks with Nucleo® Mais Party


  • 5 kg wheat flour

  • 5 kg of Nucleo® Mais Party

  • 300 g fresh brewer's yeast

  • 250 g salt

  • 1 l of olive oil

  • 6/6,5 l of water



Mix the flour, the Nucleo®, the yeast and 5.5 l of water for 5 minutes at speed 1. Switch to speed 2 and pour the remaining water a little at a time.

During the last minutes of the dough mix, add salt and oil. Total kneading time: 15/20 minutes. Final temperature: 26°C.

Leave the dough to rest for 10 minutes on a previously oiled shelf. Cut the dough into strips about 10 cm wide. Spread them on bars sprinkled with extruded corn. Leave the dough rest for 40 minutes, covered with a cloth. Cut the tongues with a plastic scraper into 2 cm wide pieces.

Pass them in the extruded corn.

Stretch them until they reach the breadstick size and place them on perforated trays. Bake immediately with steam at 170°C. Cook for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 150°C and cook for 10 more minutes. Open the steam relief valve halfway through the cooking process.
