Miller Short Dough Test

Master bakers have always used the firmness of a dough to judge its suitability for sheeting and rolling, as well as to predict the final texture of the baked products. The TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer can be used in conjunction with the Miller Short Dough Preparation Set (TA-85) to precisely quantify the firmness of short doughs with an extremely high degree of repeatability. The Miller Short Dough Preparation Set is also suitable for several other types of dough and dough-like products, such as thick pastes or fillings.
