Pioneering a New Path to Predict Final Product Quality (Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery)
Puratos Serbia, a division of the Puratos group, has a small team that oversees the development and quality control of the company's extensive line of semi-finished baked product mixes.
Due to rising wheat prices, millers are more likely to purchase raw wheat from their suppliers based on cost rather than quality. Companies like Puratos Serbia must spend significant time, resources, and ingredients, conducting baking trials to ensure their product mixes meet their customers' specifications.
Using the Mixolab 2 – a universal dough characterizer – the Puratos Serbia team has developed a unique application to qualify each flour delivery for specific products in their database. This application has significantly reduced their reliance on baking trials, improved productivity, saved energy costs, and freed equipment for other R&D efforts.
