Training Course content

Module 1 – Ingredient technology (17 May 2022)

Do you want to reduce costs, develop new and innovative products or resolve quality issues effectively? Understanding the ingredients used in your product and which impact they have on product quality is often key to achieve these objectives. This module will cover:

  • Interpret common flour testing methods and understand flour specifications
  • Understand the functionality of salt, ascorbic acid and fats
  • Know what role enzymes and emulsifiers play in modern breadmaking


Module 2 – Key processes (18 May 2022)

Understanding and optimising your process is essential to prevent quality faults, reduce waste and ultimately reduce costs. This module will provide a thorough understanding of the key processes that transform raw materials into a highly complex dough matrix which is baked into one of the world’s favourite staple food. During this course, delegates will gain an understanding of:

  • The importance of dough development
  • Different routes to achieve dough development
  • The impact of moulding techniques and methods on product characteristics
  • The processes taking place during proving
  • The conversion from foam to sponge during baking


Module 3 -  Shelf-life, troubleshooting and quality assessment (19 May 2022)

Many consumers use the shelf-life of breads to draw conclusions on its date of production and freshness. Consequently, breads with a longer best before date can be perceived as fresher than breads with a short best before date. Knowing which factors influence the best before date and how this can be extended can improve the attractiveness to consumers and reduce wastage.

Product quality faults are another common source of wastage and/or customer complaint. Using a systematic approach to identify and effectively resolve faults can save time and offers an opportunity to build-up in-house knowledge that can be utilised to respond to recurring issues. 

Whether your aim is to reduce costs, improve product quality, reduce wastage or increase consumer acceptance, this module will cover:

  • How to extend the shelf-life of your product
  • Troubleshoot effectively using a systematic approach
  • Objectively quantify bread quality characteristics

Module 3 requires a good understand of raw materials and processes used to produce  breads. If you are new to the baking industry, we recommend attending Modules 1 & 2 first.
