Maize - Determination of moisture content (on milled grains and on whole grains)

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 March 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 34
ICS Code (Cereals, pulses and derived products): 67.060
scope:

This document specifies two methods:

- a reference method for the determination of the moisture content of maize grains and ground whole maize, groats, grits and maize flour, see Clause 4;

- a routine method for the evaluation of the moisture content of maize in whole grains, see Clause 5.

The latter is not suitable for use for experts' reports, or for calibration or checking of humidity meters, because of its significant bias to the reference method (see Table B.3).
