Analysis of Properties of Wheat Using FT 9700 FT-NIR Analyzer


Harvested wheat is typically milled into flour which can then be used to make a wide range of foods, such as bread and pasta or used as raw material in feed production. Moisture and protein are key parameters for evaluating quality of a wheat sample to be used in flour milling or for setting up formulation in feed milling. This application note shows that the FT 9700 NIR analyzer can accurately determine both the moisture and protein content in ground wheat samples.
