The product (saltine cracker scrap less mold) began to increase its width. Why may this happen? How can I fix it?
Hello, the product should be short too, letting the relaxation canvas slower is one way, another can be a stronger wheat flour being necessary to increase the enzyme protease.
Check and answer the following things:
You need to check if size of ur embosser/cutter is Ok as for ur product or not? if size of embosser/cutter is more then required width will not be achieved. if these are ok then you can do following changes from mixing:
water quantity in dough? reduce a bit water in ur dough
Reduce Ammonium bicarbonate as more it will puff more it will spread width wise
Increase a bit 2nd stage SMS mixing time
dough stay time before cutting? give some little more time.
increase protease enzyme it will reduce the shrinkage as well and retain the biscuit length and width OK.
