Throughout the process of bakery production, dough stickiness is a widespread problem and is influenced by many factors. Reliable, quick and quantitative methods are needed for measurement of dough stickiness in baking industry. In this study, three different flours were used (F1, F2 and F3) and 12% wheat starch and 2% vital gluten were added to those flours to widen protein content of each flour sample. Stickiness values of prepared doughs were measured using SMS/Chen-Hoseney unit at different resting times (0, 20 and 40 mins) Stickiness (g), work of adhesion (g.s) and dough strength/cohesivenes (mm) values were measured for comparison. Obtained data from dough with F1 was significantly different from other flours (P<0.05). Protein content and resting time have changed dough stickiness value. A positive relationship was found between farinograph water absorption and dough stickiness of flour. Stickiness value increased with water uptake of flour.
