Method Description:

This empirical test develops a wheat flour dough in the mixing chamber of the Brabender Farinograph. The dough is made by titrating water into the flour in the mixing chamber. The dough consistency is continuously measured as the torque against the mixing blades. The mixing parameters from the dough development curve are used as indicators of flour quality for bread baking.



Additional Information:

Several standard test results are determined from the Farinograph test. These include percent absorption, arrival time, peak time, stability, mixing tolerance index (MTI) and twenty minute drop (TMD).
