Helpful Hints

  • Flours containing meal are milled from premium grain, which is high in good quality protein, therefore the mixing requirement is generally higher than white flours.
  • Under mixing will result in failure to achieve desired proof, and product can collapse in the oven. If a dough is mixed to the point where it starts to show signs of breakdown, a better loaf will be achieved as long as the dough temperature does not get too high.
  • Keep dough covered at all times when not being processed.
  • A soft dough is required where bran or other moisture absorbing ingredients are used.
  • Due to the cutting action of bran the dough structure will become more fragile as proof proceeds, so gentle handling of the products into the oven is essential to avoid collapse.
  • There is no need to add gluten to this product, unless you wish to produce large very light textured products or really bold double cut rolls.
  • If you do experience problems with your products, please contact your Laucke Customer Manager.
