Abstract

Salt crystals are added to a number of baked products to add a burst of flavor during consumption. Typically, a large number of salt crystals fall off of the product during shipping and handling and locate at the bottom of the packaging. A measure of the adhesion of the remaining crystals would provide a basis for research to strengthen the bond of the salt to the product to increase customer satisfaction and reduce waste.
