A Volumeter for Breads Prepared from 10 Grams of Flour.

A displacement volumeter is described for bread loaves prepared from 10 g of flour. Standard deviations of loaf volume measurements by the instrument was significantly lower than those by a procedure published earlier. Other advantages of the new apparatus are that it is a closed system and that volume readings take significantly less time than with the method previously described. With the new volumeter and glass beads of 2 mm diameter, three independent readings gave a reasonable power to discriminate between items that differ in volume by at least 1 cm3.
