AHRENSBURG, GERMANY — Mühlenchemie’s Digital Navigator helps users decide on additives and enzymes through a real-time web application.

Through a global network of rheological laboratories and trial bakeries, production facilities and local applications consultants, Mühlenchemie collected empirical data for flour standardization which it summarized in the Navigator, which has been available free of charge since 2008. The matrix provides an overview of the influence of flour additives on the functional properties of flours.

The digital version now makes it simple for millers to find the right flour improvers to meet the physical and baking requirements of their doughs. Via drop-down menus, the desired product parameters are selected and translated by logical operations into solutions using enzymes or additives.

With the digital version of the Navigator, Mühlenchemie said it is ensuring that the free self-service offer is kept up to date. In the future, it will be offered in additional languages.

The Digital Navigator is available at www.navigator.muehlenchemie.com.
