Clarification of Batter/Breading Calculation

Please note that Method 1 from the PDF example below for calculating the bread alternate contribution of the batter/breading system requires that the percent of enriched flour and/or whole grain must be greater than the total liquid used (water and oil if applicable) in the combined batter/breading composite. In addition, the enrichment levels for the batter and breading must be at least 65 percent for batter and 85 percent for breading. Please refer to the batter/breading calculation examples included at the following link for complete details.
