The Baking Industry Research Trust (BIRT) is a sub-committee of the New Zealand Association of Bakers (NZAB), delegated the responsibility of administering the Trust Account. The Trust Account was set up to meet the requirements of the Wheat Industry Research Levies Act 1989 and to identify and make recommendations to the NZAB Executive. The NZAB Executive has legal responsibility for administering the Trust, and other levy payers on research projects.
The BIRT committee is made up of representatives from the various levy paying sectors. These include plant bakers, small bakeries represented by the Baking Industry Association of New Zealand (BIANZ) (Baking Society) and biscuit manufacturers, as well as the Chair of the New Zealand Flour Milling Industry Research Trust. The two sectors frequently combine on research projects.
Copies of completed research reports are available to all levy payers and BIRT would encourage all industry members to take advantage of research conducted on their behalf.
Since the formation of the Trust in 1989, a key aspect of the Trust’s work has been to ensure that the research conducted is appropriate for the Industry sector the Trust represents. Consequently in addition to having representatives from all sectors, the trust has also conducted a number of strategy workshops in which industry personnel have outlined the research framework for the Trust to follow.
The framework developed has provided the Trust with some clear guidelines but the Trust is always open to further input from levy payers as to research projects they believe would assist them in their business; BIRT members therefore encourage and welcome input from Industry.
By way of this website, BIRT is endeavouring to make access to the research and activities happening within the NZ baking industry more available to industry and other interested people-it is an extremely exciting industry to be part of so it is great to be able to share it with you. Happy browsing.

Techniques Used for Baking

...Techniques Used To Decorate Cakes Red Velvet. Devil’s Food. Classic White. Angel Food Cake. Pound Cake. These are just a few of the multitude of cakes there are in the world. Not including the ones still to be made and discovered by future bakes of the world. Baking is traditional as well as a hobby to many. Unlike cooking, baking is specific. You have to follow recipes to the exact measurements. If not, a disaster is likely to happen and your cake will not be what you expect. Baking is sweet. Baking is history. Baking is today. Did you know that when red velvet cake was first made in the 1930’s it was called Red Devil? It was called this because chocolate cake is referred to as Devil’s Food and red velvet is in actuality a red chocolate cake. (Olver, 2014) Did you also know that baking records show that already in the years 2600-2100 B.C. bread was baked by Egyptians, who it is believed had learned the skill from the Babylonians. A relief signifying the royal bakery of Ramses features bread and cakes, some of these were shaped in the form of animals and used for sacrifices. Other early records, this time by the Greek scholar (Aristophanes 450-385 B.C), show the existence of honey flans and patterned tortes. According to Aristophanes, the ancient Greeks also had a type of doughnut made from crude flour and honey called “Dispyrus” a ring-cake that was submerged in wine and consumed hot. (Pfister, 2014) Now it is acknowledged, the Romans were a hearty, festivity loving......

Topic Sentence 2 Bread is a staple in many households. Paragraph 1 Most times when we think of cake, we think of birthdays and weddings. Cakes can often be found at any holiday celebration. In the Roman period, only the wealthiest people had cake. It was made with the most expensive and exquisite ingredients that could be found. By the 19th century, ingredients became more affordable and recipes were easier to understand. Archaeologists had discovered cakes made with moistened, crushed grains in the Neolithic villages. Today, we would call this a biscuit or a simple cookie. A traditional cake is made up of refined flour, shortening or oil, sugar, eggs, a leavening compound, and some kind of flavoring. Cakes come in all different shapes, sizes, textures, and ingredients. From chocolate cake to cheesecake to biscuits, they are all part of our lives. We all eat cake!

Baking

...HISTORY OF BAKING On today’s market there is a never ending variety of the most delicious sweets and pastries to please both the palate and the eyes. We have become so used to this diverse range of bread, mouth watering pastries and cakes that seldom we ask just how they come into existence. I guess my initial interest in the origin of the baking industry was not aroused by accident; rather I suspect it was kindled by a chain of events occurring earlier in my life... My Grandfather owned a small hotel and bakery in Switzerland and when he retired my father who was an excellent pastry cook continued the business. As a small child I spent many hours watching my dad at work and later followed in his footsteps almost as a matter of course. Then again, I have a suspicion that it may have been “fate-by-design” that made me take up pastry-cooking. The question still remains, was my career pre-determined by the fact that my grandfather had thousands of letterheads printed for his bakery which included his name? The prospect of a hefty quantity discount would no doubt have made perfect sense to my frugal fore bearer; it must have been so much cheaper getting all this printing done in a big way. Grandfather should have realised (and I suspect that he might have) that there was not the slightest chance that any one generation could ever use up this huge mountain of stationery. Granddad’s first name “Fritz” was also my father’s first name and when I was born there was never any question...

Baking

...For most of us today, baking is something we don’t usually think much about. For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed baking. Over the last few years, I started watching baking shows. The shows would talk about leavening agents and how they were important. My children and husband started asking me what a leavening agent was. Obviously I would know; I am Kathy Crocker to my family and friends. They thought that I always had the answers. When it came baking, the only thing I knew about leavening was it was baking soda and baking powder. This had piqued my curiosity. What is a leavening agent? Leavening is used to modify something for the better. Leavening is a key component in baking; everything from cookies to bread. Using a leavening agent helps make baked goods light and have a higher volume. The baked goods are more tender and easier to digest. There are three main leavening agents; solid, liquid, and gas. The most commonly used one is gas (air, steam, and carbon dioxide). All baked goods rely on steam and air in baking. Steam is released because of the liquids in baked goods. Air is present in the batter when we use physical means to incorporate it in; creaming, whipping, folding, sifting, and kneading. Carbon dioxide is not in all baked goods. Carbon dioxide can be found when using yeast, baking soda, and baking powder. Yeast is commonly used in breads. Baking powder can be used alone or with another leavening agent. Baking soda is often used with an......

Baking and Boiling

...Boiling Foods Boiling is the cooking of foods in a liquid either at or brought to boiling point at 100 degrees Celsius. It keeps the food in motion, it prevents sticking and it cooks the food quickly. Food such as eggs, pasta, rice, beans, soups, sauce, potatoes, stocks and stew meats can be boiled. When ingredients are boiled it is usually done in water, however it can also be used for different sauces to reduce them, or for brown/white stocks, a Blanc (water, flour and lemon), court bouillon or milk. It is important to use the correct proportion of liquid when boiling food because otherwise there might not be an even coverage over the food so it could dry out, or if there is too much liquid it could damage the food. There are two basic methods of boiling: 1. Food is placed in cold liquid and then brought to the boil and cooked. This is not only safer but prevents the food from losing its shape and helps extract flavour. It also helps tenderise any foods with a fibrous structure. For example: Stocks and Leaf Vegetables 2. Food is placed in boiling liquid and cooked. This retains as much colour as possible and apparently reduces enzymic action that destroys Vitamin C. For example: Pasta and Rice There are also different techniques of boiling: Simmering: boiling gently with gentle surface motion. Blanching: is the pre-cooking or part cooking of food by plunging into boiling water e.g green vegetables Refreshing: is the cooling of food after blanching or......

How to Bake a Cake

...suit everyone’s taste buds. Cakes that are made from scratch tend to taste way better than store bought cakes, but many may not know how to bake a cake; this will help you step by step on how to bake a cake for your next upcoming event. The first thing you will need to do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees. You need to start gathering all the materials, such as milk, eggs, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, vanilla extract, and the baking utensils. Depending on how big or small you want the cake will determine what size pan you should use. Make sure the pan is deep and round so it will rise while baking in the oven. To begin the actually baking portion you must measure out the ingredients before adding them together so the process will go a little faster. All the measurements must be exact so the cake will taste how it’s supposed to. You will need to measure out 2 ¼ cups of flour, 1 ½ cups of sugar, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, ½ cup shortening, ¾ cup of milk, 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla, ¼ cup of milk, and 2 eggs. Next, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Then, add in the shortening and pour in ¾ cup of milk and 1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla. It’s best to use an electric mixer, but if you don’t have one then a fork will do the same job. Lastly add in the remaining milk and eggs, stir until all the lumps have completely disappeared. After you have finished mixing everything, start lightly greasing the pan......

This is critical information for Guillen to redesign or reposition his product. What’s more, it’s the motives of purchase.

...concerned with activities of people working towards a common goal. The modern society cannot exist without business. Baking is a food cooking method that uses prolonged dry heat by convection, rather than thermal radiation, normally in an oven, but also on hot ashes, or a hot stones. The most common baked item is bread but many other types of food are baked. Heat is gradually transferred “from the surface of cakes, cookie and bread to their centre. As heat travels trough, it transform batters and dough’s into baked goods with a firm and dry crust and softer centre”. Baking can be combined with grilling to produce a hybrid barbeque variant by using both methods simultaneously one before the other, cooking twice. Baking is related to barbequing because the concept of the masonry oven is similar to that smoke fit. Baking has been traditionally done at home by women for domestic consumption, is the backbone of modern y man in bakeries and restaurants for local consumption and when production was industrialized, by machines in large factories. The art and skills of baking remains a fundamental one and important for nutrition, as baked goods, especially breads, are a profession called a baker. All types of food can be baked but some requires special care and protection from direct heat. Various techniques have been developed to provide this protection.

But like the sirens the delicious baked goods and treats that find their way into my life can ultimately bring me crashing into the rocks, death finding me with sugar glistening on my pale lips. Yes, as delicious and tempting certain foods may be it could be fatal. This is a sad reality for anyone who has been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. This was the dilemma I faced. Some of my greatest memories are with my mother and myself in the kitchen, filling up the house with the delectable smell of cakes, pies, and tasty treats. Baking lit a fire inside of me, pun intended, and I’ve spent my life spreading love through various confectionaries. That is, until I thought my baking life was over as I was diagnosed with this diabolical condition. When the doctor walked into the room with a handful of papers I knew that something was amiss. The noise around me muted. All I could hear was the echo of my pounding heart and the sound of my own voice in my head telling me that this could not be good. Before the words even escaped her perfectly manicured lips I knew. I knew that my test results were off and I knew that my life was about to change. “Your bloodwork showed that your liver enzymes are uncharacteristically high and your blood sugar levels are through the roof. You have diabetes.” The doctor continued to speak but I heard nothing. I sat...
