aeration, bubbles and rheology

"The presence of bubbles decreases the strain hardening character of the dough and its resistance to failure under conditions of biaxial extension, and increases the rate of work input to the dough during mixing. Mixing doughs under a constant flow rate of gas affects aeration and rheology, and appears to be much more effective at supplying oxygen to the dough than mixing under pressure"
