The Impact of LPG on Biscuit Quality

Ensuring Perfect Bake

A case study of a customer opted LPG to guarantee consistent heat for uniform baking, prevent production stoppages, and ensure top-notch biscuit quality.

Abstract

 

This case study focuses on a leading biscuit manufacturer with a production capacity of 45 MT/day, in search of a trustworthy supplier to guarantee uninterrupted fuel supply and ensure operational efficiency. With a keen interest in meeting safety standards and compliance, they turned to SUPERGAS for a reliable LPG solution. The study describes the integration of SUPERGAS's LPG supply and installation services and their impact on securing a seamless and safe production process within the customer's AP and Telangana plants.

LPG for Biscuit Baking 

LPG plays a pivotal role in the biscuit baking, primarily because of its ability to offer consistent and controllable heating, which is crucial for ensuring the quality and uniformity of baked goods. LPG provides uniform heat distribution across the oven, ensuring that biscuits are baked evenly. This uniformity is essential for achieving a consistent product in terms of texture, color, and taste, which are critical parameters for consumer acceptance and brand reputation.

Biscuit quality is also dependent on the moisture content. LPG-fired ovens can be fine-tuned to manage the oven's humidity level, ensuring that biscuits come out with the correct crispness and texture. This is particularly important in maintaining quality across different batches and product lines.
