The researchers looked for antioxidants in the crust, the baked bread, and in the flour before baking. What the scientists found was startling. Before the process of baking, there is no trace of a particular and unusual type of antioxidant known as pronyl-lysine. After baking, this compound was found as much as 8 times more abundantly in the crust as compared to the  softer, inside part of the bread.  Darker breads, such as pumpernickel or whole wheat also increase the total amount of antioxidants available in the end product, especially the crust. However, the researchers also discovered that overcooking of the bread reduces the amount of antioxidants and so over baking should be avoided. So all I can say is, “Eat your crust!”
