Change in selected geometrical characteristics of barley flakes due to different hydrothermal treatments

The paper presents the scope of the influence of applied parameters for steam treatment of hulled barley grain on diversification of geometrical characteristics of barley flakes obtained from this material. Completed analysis of obtained research results concerning variability of surface area of flake horizontal projection and its shape factor proved large scope of changes in these parameters, mainly resulting from diversification of applied hydrothermal treatments, that is steam moistening time, steam pressure and initial humidity of seeds. The research has proven that moistening time and steam pressure mostly affect the size and shape of flakes. The level of raw material initial humidity had less influence on the difference in determined parameters.
