Dry balanced dough

Xylanases are known to improve dough machinability and dough-handling properties for bread, buns and rolls. Xylanases produce baked goods with better volume, crumb structure and bloom.


What is a dough conditioner?

The baking process has many factors that can create problems with quality. For example, yeast and sourdough are living cultures affected by temperature and humidity. Wheat flour is a natural ingredient that fluctuates in quality. New harvests, changes in weather or equipment, or less-skilled labor also add to the variation.

Dough conditioners significantly increase tolerance of fluctuations. That makes it easier to achieve consistent baking results. Dough conditioners improve dough processing in highly automated environments. They ensure more constant production processes and outputs.

Enzymes: key dough conditioner ingredients

There are a number of different types of dough conditioner ingredients including enzymes. Enzymes are natural processing aids. These natural dough conditioners help bakers achieve a dry, balanced dough for better machinability and dough-handling properties. The result is bread, buns, rolls and biscuits with better volume, crumb structure and bloom.
