Laminating

Laminating. The act of producing alternating layers or laminates of dough (q.v.) and fat by a process that involves the following steps: first sheeting (q.v.), the dough, then spreading a continuous layer of fat (q.v.) on the dough sheet, followed by repeatedly folding and sheeting the layered dough until the desired number of layers is attained. In large volume production, the introduction of fat between the layers of dough is normally carried out by various methods of coextrusion of the two materials.
