Dough-gluten extensibility

TMS dough-gluten extensibility kitThe TMS dough-gluten fixture enables the extensibility of bread dough to be measured. Wheat dough is highly viscoelastic under tension (combining unrecoverable flow and elasticity) and this behaviour influences the textual and sensory properties of the final bakery product.

The fixture is designed for the Kieffer method which applies uniaxial extensibility to the sample.

The kit contains the apparatus to prepare samples consistently – a Teflon press forms the measured amount of dough into flat strips.

The table component has an aperture which allows the hook (probe) to pull the sample vertically at a constant rate.

Nestle purchased a texture system from Food Technology Corporation in 2006. Since then I have recommended the texture system to several vendors in North and Central America. Staff at FTC was able to develop a simple training manual and procedure for the texture system allowing easy training in short period of time.

From purchasing of equipment through to installation and start-up, the level of personal care and service was remarkable. Shirl Lakeway and his staff at Food Technology Corporation are patient and understanding, and are always at our disposal for any assistance. Since we bought the equipment we have had no problems and feel very secure knowing that we can count on FTC for their support and service.

Excellent customer service. Consistently followed up and offered help without asking. Relatively low priced - provides good value. 

Easy to switch different load cells. Used it for 5 lab sessions for 68 students this semester and performed well.
