In the farinograph test, the consistency of dough was increased by decreasing the pH with acetic acid in the absence of salt (sodium chloride), but contrarily, it tended to decrease from a lower value to the lowest, in the presence of salt. With the extensigraph, the resistance showed a fixed lower level at the pH range 5.9- 4.3 without salt; however, with salt it was increased from a low level to the highest value by decreasing the pH from 5.8 to 4.2. The extensibility showed a marked decrease in both cases with or without salt.
