Berliner-Koopman Method

Berliner-Koopman Method. A laboratory procedure, widely used in European bakery laboratories, for estimating the swelling capacity of gluten (q.v.). The method involves treating one gram of gluten with measured volumes of dilute lactic acid (q.v.) and noting the gluten's expansion after 2.5 hours in an inverted special flask with a narrow graduated neck.
