Analysis of Moisture, Protein, Fiber, Oil and Free Fatty Acids in Soybeans Using the DA 7250


For soybean processors it is important to have full knowledge of the quality of the soybean they purchase, as its value to a high degree depends on the composition of, for example, oil and protein. For seed breeders, the fatty acid profile is also critical as there are increasing demmand for varieties with specific characteristics. The DA 7250 Near Infrared Reflactance (NIR) can perform the multicomponent analysis in seconds.
