doughLAB is a flexible dough mixer used to determine flour water absorption, dough development time and other dough mixing parameters. The instrument performs the traditional 20 minute test and AACCI 54-70.01 approved high-speed mixing 10 minute test. The 10 minute test increases lab throughput and efficiency. It improves analysis results by making it easier to interpret samples with long development times, indistinct development peaks and multiple peaks. In addition, the high speed method more closely resembles today’s bread making processes.
The doughLAB includes user-friendly Windows software designed for both millers and researchers, and automated water dispensing (no need for a burette). The mixing chamber and blades are detachable for easy cleaning. Specify the performance of wheat, rye and durum doughs. Create custom tests for bread, pastry, cookie, pasta and noodle doughs. Flour, whole meal, semolina and formulations containing ingredients and improvers can all be tested.
