A special apparatus, the firmness meter, has been designed for measuring the degree of stiffening and softening of puff-pastry doughs on working-up. These properties can be expressed in numerical values. This apparatus is described and some experiments and results are discussed. On the basis of the measured results obtained, it is possible to make a distinction between the properties of various puff-pastry fats and margarines.
