Food Tracker System

Commercial Bread and Confectionery Baking

Expect higher quality, more yield and better baking with the Datapaq® Food Tracker® Thermal Profiling System

Commercial baking is an exact science that requires precision and accuracy. It's a fine balance between ingredient quantities and measured temperature control. A small variance in either of these elements could compromise your entire production line or final product quality.

Throughout the production process, from proofing to baking, your bread and confectionery goods' characteristics are affected by temperature and humidity. Regulating oven temperatures is essential in order to create delicious, appealing products that are consistent in appearance and quality – all while maintaining Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) standards.

Limit human error with intuitive software

Time-consuming jobs like measuring cooked goods with a handheld thermometer at the end of the baking or chilling cycle does not give you a complete picture of each item’s journey throughout the entire process. With the Datapaq® Food Tracker Thermal Profiling System, you can define new development processes and achieve a firm, dry crust and a soft center for your baked goods by simply studying the data obtained from the thermocouples that monitor each baking cycle. Using our sophisticated software, you can quickly extract the data necessary to determine whether your entire batch was successfully baked – inside and out. 

Immediately detect temperature inconsistencies

Effectively monitoring and calibrating your oven’s temperature and humidity makes all the difference to its overall performance; and although professional-grade ovens are built for frequent usage, temperature drift is a common occurrence.  

It's essential to quickly detect changes inside the oven to prevent uneven baking. With the Datapaq Food Tracker, you can get a detailed picture of heat distribution in the oven and make the necessary adjustments needed to correct temperature drifts. Not only will your goods come out looking and tasting as you intended, but you can also use temperature data to predict and prevent equipment faults from developing. 

Increase quality and throughput with consistent results

The overall taste, texture, aroma, and appearance of your baked goods relies on a systematic, reliable baking process and heat inconsistencies can result in burnt, dehydrated or undercooked products that are not suitable for consumption.  

With accurate temperature monitoring through thermal profiling, you can avoid expensive setbacks in production and ensure that every aspect of your breads and pastries always meet expectations and fit the product packaging perfectly.

The Food Tracker's radio functionality, meanwhile, provides access to real-time cook validation, enabling you to shorten the cooking cycle and increase throughput. Quick reporting and analysis also reduces your process validation time and allows you to produce higher volumes without affecting product quality or on-site safety. 

Comply with safety regulations

Strict food industry regulations require commercial bakeries to provide validation that complies with the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act and HACCP guidelines. With the Datapaq Food Tracker, you can generate tangible reports so you can share your validation data with confidence. 

Datapaq can also help you prevent mold and harmful bacteria growth by monitoring both the oven and chiller environments to ensure that the core temperature is consistent. Our technology enables you to create a fully traceable process, from start to finish, along with all the quality assurance documentation you need to satisfy HACCP criteria.
