Quality control in milling can be categorized into two titles as raw material and end product analyses. Raw material, namely quality control of wheat is significant for a quality and steady production; quality control of flour which is also end product is the key for customer satisfaction.
Quality control in milling can be considered with two titles. First one is the quality control of wheat (or other grains to be grinded). Primary and the most important condition of quality flour production that is suitable to the requirements are raw material’s having features to show targeted result. With detailed analyses to be done only in an equipped laboratory, it is determined if raw material has proper features or not. In a milling plant, having no laboratory to make raw material analysis is the first and biggest handicaps for providing stability in quality because if you do not know the features and structure of wheat you cannot be sure about how to process it and comply with the standards in production.
The second title in quality control is quality control of end product. Quality control of flour is one of the most important ways to provide customer satisfaction. Analyzing the suitability of manufactured flour to production of targeted flour product enables to step in before selling the product to customer and prevent the possible dissatisfaction of customers.
