Shemurah matza has several more stringent requirements over regular matza: it has to be guarded for longer, and the people making it have in mind that it's for the mitzvah of eating matza on the night of Pesach.
I understand why hand matza looks and tastes different than machine matza - it's made in a different way. However, machine shemurah matza is, in my experience, typically darker and more well done (often slightly burned) than normal machine matza. This doesn't seem to obviously follow from its definition.
Is it a consequence of the halachic requirements of shemurah matza?
