Norma,

It really isn't that difficult to calculate how much ground ginger to use if you want to add some to your current dough enhancer blend.

According to the SelfNutritionData website at

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/spices-and-herbs/191/2, one teaspoon of ground ginger weighs 1.67 grams, or 0.055879 ounces. The Malisa website at

http://concasse.blogspot.com/2009/04/natural-dough-conditioner-enhancer.html says to use 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger for a loaf of bread. Previously, we assumed 3 1/2 cups of flour for a loaf of bread. So, for one cup of flour, the amount of ground ginger to use is (1/4)/(3 1/2) = 0.07143 t. That is a tiny bit over a 1/16 t. ("pinch") mini-measuring spoon. Its weight is 0.00399 ounces, or 0.11315 grams. So, if my math is right, adding the ground ginger to the rest of the ingredients and quantities of ingredients you used to make your original dough enhancer blend we get the following:

Amounts for One Cup (4.25oz) Better for Bread FlourLecithin granules: 0.24339oz/6.9g

Hormel high heat non-fat dry milk powder: 0.4562oz/12.93g

Knox gelatin: 0.025029oz/0.71g

Hodgson Mill vital wheat gluten: 0.31746oz/9g

Diastatic malt (assume 1t/3 cups flour): 0.0293945oz/0.83g

Vitamin C: 0.005669oz/0.16g

Ground ginger:0.00399oz/0.11315g

Total weight: 1.0811325oz/30.65g

As you can see, the amount of ground ginger is so small that it doesn't move the needle much. Unfortunately, you would have to make a new batch just to include the ginger if you want to keep all of the numbers in proper relationship. You would also perhaps want to measure an amount of the new batch (e.g, 1/8-cup) to calculate the weight of one teaspoon so that you can convert the weight of the blend used in a given dough formulation using the expanded dough calculating tool into a volume measurement if that is more convenient than trying to weigh the expanded dough calculating tool amount on a scale.
