Using Particle Size Analysis to Make Gingerbread Cookies

As the holiday season marches forward, we find Jesse tirelessly working in the lab on the “secret project.”

Coming from the North Pole, Jesse can confirm certain rumors about Santa.  One of those rumors is Santa’s love for gingerbread cookies.

Santa has very high standards when it comes to gingerbread cookies.  Santa’s standards are so high, that if he tastes “bad” gingerbread cookies at a home, he will return the following year and bring a set of entirely new kitchen gadgets, as a gentle reminder to “step your game up in the gingerbread-making arena.”

In order to make Santa a happy camper during the holiday season, Jesse has been asked to analyze the particle size distribution of the dry ingredients that goes into gingerbread cookies.  Santa wants only the finest ingredients used to make the cookies.

There is a direct correlation between particle size and producing a high quality product, and the slightest deviation in particle size can cause the quality of the product to suffer tremendously.

Santa says that you need a precise, accurate, and repeatable instrument to properly analyze the ingredients, and Microtrac’s Bluewave is the only tool for the job.

Jesse analyzed the particle size of the following ingredients on the Bluewave: Iodized salt, baking soda, brown sugar, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, flour, and ground ginger.

As you can see, Jesse is intently studying the particle size distribution to ensure everything is running smoothly.

“I think everything looks good here.”

Now that Jesse has the gingerbread cookies taken care of, I wonder what’s next for the “secret project?”  Stay tuned.
