High Alpha-Amylase Flours: Effect of pH, Acid, and Salt on the Rheological Properties of Dough.

When salt content in two doughs (pH 5.8), a control and one with 108 SKB units per 100 g of flour, was increased from 0.0 to 2.5%, the dough development times increased by 35.0 and 33.3%, respectively, whereas dough development time of a dough with 540 SKB units per 100 g of flour was negligibly affected. The pH 4.2 dough of the control flour with and without salt and L-cysteine HCl (25 ppm) + KBrO3 (75 ppm) showed negligible relaxation compared with those of the higher alpah-amylase flours. A highly significant correlation coefficient between the ratio figure and asymptotic load values, r = 0.96 (r2 = 0.92), indicated that the two parameters were highly interrelated and measured the flow behavior of dough. On decreasing the pH of dough with 540 SKB units per 100 g of flour containing 1.5% salt from 5.8 to pH 5.0, the ratio figure and asymptotic load values were found to increase from 1.9 to 3.7 and from 240 to 423 g, respectively.
