Comprehensive and versatile

• Easily create customized testing protocols for various cereals, whole wheat flours or doughs sampled directly online.

• The standard "Chopin +" protocol analyzes:
1. Behavior during mixing (hydration, development time, stability, etc.)
2. Protein quality
3. Starch gelatinization
4. Amylase activity
5. Starch retrogradation

2
PROFILER

The integrated software measures each of the standard curve parameters and converts them into six qualitative indexes: absorption, mixing, Gluten+, viscosity, amylase, retrogradation.

MIXOLAB SIMULATOR

The Simulator protocol displays a reconstituted Farinograph® curve and gives results that are
fully comparable to those of the Farinograph®:
• Water absorption
• Development time
• Stability
• Weakening

PRINCIPLE

The Mixolab measures the consistency of a dough subjected to the dual constraints of mixing and increasing temperatures. It analyzes the quality of protein and the starch using a 50 gram sample of the flour.

APPLICATIONS

For Breeders
• Facilitates wheat seed variety selection from generations F4-F5

For Millers
• Wheat testing at point of delivery
• Detection of pest-infestation in wheats
• Wheat and flour blends optimization
• Adaptation of flours for final uses through precise dosing of additives
• Analysis of different flour mill streams
• Assessing the impact of damaged starch


For Bakers
• Verifying the conformity of delivered flours
• Studying the rheological behavior of fiber-rich flours
• Facilitates the elaboration of gluten-free products
• Studying whole-wheat formulas

For All
• Optimization of customer specifications and quality control
