Brabender company logo.

Since 1923, Brabender® has been a leading supplier of measurement and process technology solutions for the milling, baking and pasta industries.

In 1928, Brabender developed the Farinograph, the world’s first and still most widely used device for testing the quality of flour, measuring its water absorption capacity and the dough’s kneading properties.

Our state-of-the-art application laboratory is available to our customers in South Hackensack, NJ where you have access to our product line to learn how you can reliably determine flour and dough properties, simulate the production process on a laboratory scale, and optimize your products. Our experts are available to help with new product development as well.
