Methods developed for estimating starch damage, alpha-amylase activity, and water absorption of flours are presented. Rheological tests have been considered in terms of the modifying effects of alpha-amylase and starch damage, and it has been shown that a reappraisal of conventional interpretations is desirable. These considerations have been extended to mechanical development of doughs and the crumb structure of bread.
