During baking, the laminations lift apart irregularly and this is how blisters may form on the biscuit surfaces. The mechanism of this lift is principally as a result of the discontinuity formed between thin sheets of dough (the laminations) by the cracker dust filling, or by skinning caused by flour, or by the dough drying out. The lenticular cavities which are formed initially expand as the air warms, but the greatest expansion results as the water vapour pressure rises when the dough piece temperature reaches 60°C and more.
As the moisture evaporates from the product and as cool air, brought into the oven with the product, expands, there is a rise in pressure in the oven. In the case of direct fired ovens where gas is burnt in the baking chambers, the increase in pressure is even greater. This pressure must be relieved so flues are provided which exhaust to the atmosphere. If the pressure rise is exactly matched by the extraction rate through the flues, the oven atmosphere will soon become rich in water vapour. This is often referred to as humidity but because the temperatures are above 100°C, the concept of relative humidity used to measure the moisture content in meteorological terms is not applicable.
