Mixing Mechanics: Saving time and money with
We all use premixes. You probably have a box of pancake mix in one of your
kitchen cupboards. Combine 1 cup of
this handy premix with a half cup of
water, drop portions into a hot skillet, and presto! You have pancakes. Quick and easy, isn’t it? It saves time you would otherwise have to spend measuring and weighing several ingredients, and you end up with the same good-tasting pancakes every time.
Some creative cooks prefer to cook from scratch because they can easily customize recipes. They can adjust the flavor by adding a little more nutmeg
or a little less vanilla. They can adjust the texture by adding more or less liquid or flour. Of course, this creativity adds time to the pancake batter preparation. This is fine and good for the creative cook, but is this what
you’re looking for in your industrial applications? No way! You want each batch to be like the others, and you
want to make your batches as quickly and efficiently as possible. A premix, also called a master batch, can help
you achieve this.
