The Farinograph Handbook: Advances in Technology, Science and Applications, Fourth Edition highlights the instrument's changes over the last three decades. This book outlines how different farinograph models work, how to properly run a standard test and interpret the results, and the standard and unconventional applications for the instrument. This fourth edition will familiarize readers with the farinograph instrument's principles of operation and factors that affect its operation. This edition also contains new research on dough rheology, the use of results for process control in traditional bakery applications, and information on instrument maintenance and calibration.
This handbook is ideal for dough rheologists, cereal scientists, food (specifically, bread) scientists, millers, grain developers, academics, researchers and students.

Jayne Bock is the Global Technical Leader of the Food Division for C.W. Brabender Instruments, Inc., and an adjunct professor at the University of Guelph. Her expertise is in grain and flour quality, gluten structure-function, and the influence of bran on product structure and quality in whole grain products. She works extensively with wheat breeders, agronomists, growers, millers, and food processors at the interface of academia and industry to find solutions for emerging quality issues in the milling and baking industries. Jayne earned her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Kansas State University and her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Clyde Don studied chemical engineering in The Hague/Delft (BSc degree) and chemistry at the University of Amsterdam (MSc degree). He obtained his PhD degree in food chemistry from Wageningen University. He has worked in applied research and technology (e.g., TNO) and analytical service labs in various leadership functions. As an active member of AACCI he has chaired scientific initiatives and divisions, co-chaired courses, conducted workshops, and led technical committees and working groups. For IFT he is the co-founder and leadership team member of the IFT Protein Division (2015). Clyde is also currently a member of the AOAC Expert Review Panel on gluten methods. Since 2009 he has been the managing director of Clyde Don Consultancy FoodPhysica and, since 2016, director of the FoodPhysica R&D Laboratory, providing consulting and contract R&D services in sustainable food science and technology, bio-based products, processing and interactions, food machinery and NPD, protein functionality and applications, analytical chemistry, and food safety and quality.
