Enzymes for bakery products

This course is available as a tailored option for those who have a number of staff who would benefit from the training. If you would like more information please complete the enquiry form

Benefits of attending

Enzymes are important processing aids in bakery food production, but their nature and properties are not well understood.  The course will provide a basic introduction to what enzymes are, how they work in bakery products and what factors affect their performance.  This important information is essential in order to know how and when enzymes can be used in bakery products and how to best utilize their functionality. 

The course is aimed at scientists and technical staff who are interested in improving their understanding of the properties of bakery enzymes through a mix of theory and practical demonstrations. The knowledge gained will help to make informed decisions regarding enzyme selection to improve raw material functionality and processing performance.  Depending on requirement the course can be run for 1 or 2 days.

Course content

The course will cover what enzymes are, how they work in bakery products and what factors affect their performance.  The application of specific enzymes will be covered such as amylases, xylanases, lipases and proteases. Learning will be reinforced by hands-on practical work to use enzymes in making products of interest to course delegates.

Delegates will carry out pilot-scale baking trials to observe the effect of enzymes in the making of bakery products of interest to the delegates.  They will have the opportunity to demonstrate methods to measure enzyme activity in dough and batter systems.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course the delegates will be able to:

• Have a good grasp of the basics of what enzymes are and how they work.
• Handle enzymes and use them in pilot-scale baking trials.
• With the experience gained they will be able to use enzymes in their own work place to achieve the required benefit in processing or in final product quality.
