Alkaline Water Retention Capacity

VIEW METHOD

Objective
Alkaline water retention capacity (AWRC) is the amount of alkaline water held by flour at 14% moisture basis after centrifugation. AWRC, expressed as percent of flour weight, is inversely correlated with cookie spread. The method is applicable to predicting flour quality for sugar-snap cookies, which are made slightly alkaline by leavening agents.
