Dough Relaxation

Main image for Dough Relaxation

When protein-rich flour is used or general dough relaxation is desired for technological purposes AB Enzymes special proteases relax the doughs to the desired degree by either very specifically attacking the gluten network to achieve a very gentle and controllable degree of relaxation without the risk of destructing the protein network and loose its gas holding capacity or broadly attacking the gluten network to lead to a strong relaxation effect.

Our protease VERON® PS is a suitable natural alternative for usual relaxing agents such as l-Cystein.

Proteases used for dough relaxation are used as processing aids in the first steps of the baking process and are deactivated during the baking step by the heat of the oven.
