Guar gum was added at 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5% levels to commercial (maida) and laboratory milled wheat flour and dough properties and bread making quality were studied. Water absorption of the flour increased with higher levels of guar gum. Dough development time did not vary much up to 1.0% addition of guar gum but at 1.5% dough development time decreased with both flours. Mixing tolerance index improved up to 1% guar gum and at 1.5% level a decrease in dough consistency was observed. Mixing dough in a mixograph showed decreased dough development time with added guar gum, but stability and consistency of the dough were not affected. Up to 1% level guar gum increased the wt. of loaf by 4.0% by absorbing more water (1.4-2.0%) and also retaining more water. The dough was sticky above 1% addition of guar gum. Crust colour improved from dull brown to golden brown and compressibility of crumb gradually decreased with increasing addition of guar gum. Addition of greater than 1.0% of guar gum adversely affected dough handling properties.
