Steaming has great benefits for the texture of bakery products. The texture is Fluffy, Moist and Soft.
In a conventional baking or frying process flavors are lost because of high temperatures. There’s browning (Maillard reaction) and formation of acrylamide in the crust. The steam baking temperature does not exceed 100 degrees Celsius. There’s no browning and no loss of flavor sensation.
