Why Your Flour Quality Control Sometimes Fails, and How to Fix It
Baking Industry Observations Often Overlooked
Baking processes have evolved remarkably over the last 20 years. Products that were supposed to be only shapeable by hand are now produced on high throughput industrial processes using sophisticated automated machines.
Nevertheless, the methods for evaluating flour quality have generally remained the same. To achieve success in these changing times, bakers have more opportunities to take a more impactful role in defining flour quality specifications for their unique processes.
This paper provides the guidelines to help bakers become more proactive in controlling flour quality for their unique process by applying tried and true technologies.
