Determination of Bread Volume by Laser Topography: BVM Method

VIEW METHOD | VIEW COLLABORATIVE STUDY REPORT

Objective
Volume is an important measure of fermented bread quality that has traditionally been determined by seed displacement methods (1,3). In this method, laser topography is used to digitally model a sample and determine its volume (2). The method is applicable to round, elongated, and rectangular leavened bread products with volumes of 200–2,800 mL. It overcomes the limitations identified in the earlier methods.
