Approximately, US$200 Billion is spent each year on baked goods, one of the most popular food markets. Food manufacturers generate their success by providing high-quality products to consumers on a consistent basis, and baked goods are no exception. As with the majority of food products, production developments, competition, and cultural influences have given consumers a wider range of options than ever before.
However, the production of baked goods provides many challenges since there are a multitude of input variables that can affect product quality. Traditional manual methods for quality control are slow, labor intensive, and often yield subjective results and although the expenditure on raw ingredients may seem low, bakeries frequently operate on tiny margins as a result of energy, production, and labor costs.
