Bakers need to know how much water different types of Canadian flour can absorb.

(Montage: A researcher beginning a test using a farinograph.)

We test how much water a flour can absorb by using a farinograph.

(Montage: Dough being mixed by the farinograph.)

The farinograph measures how much water is needed to make dough of a specific consistency.

(Montage: A graph of the test results are displayed on a computer screen. The researcher removes the dough from the farinograph.)

The results of this official test method help bakers optimize their recipes to make their delicious goods!
