Bakers Percent
Baker's Percent. A method of calculation applied to ingredient ratios in a bakery product's formula (q.v.) or recipe in which the total weight of flour (q.v.) always is taken to represent 100% and the weights of the remaining ingredients are calculated in relation to this flour base. Hence, the sum total of all ingredient percentages in any given formula always exceeds 100%.
