									BAKER’S MATH



     Working a Dough Formula in Percent
BAKER’S MATH
 The percent of each ingredient is based on the
  total flour weight, and expressed as a percentage
  of that weight.
 Total flour = white flour + whole-wheat flour
  only.
 Total flour weight is always equal to 100%
BAKER’S MATH
   To Convert % into Weight Using your Calculator.
     Enter the flour weight you want to use.
     Press “X”
     Enter the percent you want the weight for.
     Press the “%” key and read the answer in the display
      window.
BAKER’S MATH
   Example
       Formula
         Flour 100%
         Salt 1.75%

         Sugar 2%

         IDY 0.375%

         Water 58%
BAKER’S MATH
   We want to use 40-pounds of flour.
     Salt: 40 X 1.75 (press the “%” key) and read 0.7-
      pounds.
     The answer will always be in the same weight units
      as the flour is given in.
     To change 0.7-pounds to ounces, multiply 0.7 X 16 =
      11.2-ounces.
     Repeat for each ingredient
BAKER’S MATH
   Why use Baker’s Math?
     Easy to see at a glance if a dough formula is in
      balance.
     Increasing or decreasing the dough size is
      mathematical so further adjustments are not needed.
     Allows for making ingredient usage projections
BAKER’S MATH
 Addup the total of percentages in your
 dough formula
  Flour 100%
  Salt 1.75%
  Sugar 2%
  IDY 0.375%
  Water 58%
  Total % = 162.125
  Divide 162.125 by 100 = 1.62
BAKER’S MATH
 If you divide the dough weight by 1.62 you will
  know the flour weight for that amount of dough
  made by that formula.
 Once you know the flour you can calculate the
  ingredient weights (ingredient % X flour weight =
  ingredient weight.
BAKER’S MATH
   Putting weights into percentages.
     Divide the ingredient weight by the total flour weight
      and multiply by 100
     Example:
         40-pounds of flour
         23-pounds of water

         23 divided by 40 = 0.575 X 100 = 57.5% water

         Do this for each ingredient
