Goodmorning Everyone,

 

I have a question regarding cleaning of proofing basket liner We are a bakery and makning traditional European style bread, in our process, we use proofing baskets and a cloth liner is used in those baskets.

 

But this cloth liner is never washed or cleaned and used till the time it is damaged.

 

Sometimes i see dough deposit on the liner. When i asked production manager to get these washed and cleaned, she said there is no risk as the bread goes in the oven after proofing.

 

In terms of micro, i could not speak much but i am not satisfied with not cleaning of the cloth liner.

 

 

Could you please help in seeing the risk in not cleaning the cloth liner.

 

Thanks in advance!!

Generally speaking, one would think that the company has enough of them to allow some to be out for laundry and still have enough on hand

 

I would tend to agree, however, with your production manager and this particular read from BC also agrees, when not proofing enriched dough, but would need washed if using cloche or linens to proof dough enriched with butter/fat or eggs

Also, there are some industries (like bread bakeries and chocolate) where introducing moisture increases the likelyhood of food borne pathogens

 

Most chocolate factories do not wash chocolate molds

Stop taking advise from the production manager.

Hi SQF Consultant,
