The Cereal Milling and Product Laboratory is a complete product development, analytical, research and applications facility of approximately 2,500 square feet. The facility and operation has been supported, in part, by the cereal industry and the Michigan State Millers' Association. The facility includes a walk-in cooler, four refrigerators and four freezers. Within the Cereal Milling and Product Laboratory, a milling room (temperature- and humidity-controlled) houses a wide range of milling equipment with a large glass window that allows operation observation away from the noise and flour dust generated during the milling process. A wide range of baking apparatus, rheological instruments and a food extruder are situated in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment. The facility provides capability for producing a variety of baked, extruded and milled products, and for performing rheological and biochemical tests.
