Various procedures for determining 'ash' content of meat products have been compared the iso method gave significantly higher results than the other methods tested the standard method (ias 2-043) gave lower recoveries and, in one of the experiments, lower results for ash content, than the other methods tested. The main features of on-line ash monitors as measuring gauges have been discussed in the paper: accuracy of the indirect measuring method used, response ti the longer the time of measurement, the lower the statistical error of determination of pulses mean intensity at the same time, if the input signal varies, the.
This chapter contains sections titled: definitions principle instruments and glassware personal protection procedure expression of results precision values examples bibliography analytical methods for food and dairy powders, 1 related information recommended determination of density. 1111 background ash refers to the inorganic residue remaining after either ignition or complete oxidation of organic matter in a food sample the inorganic residue consists mainly of the minerals present in the food sample determining the ash content is part of the proximate analysis for nutritional evaluation also, ashing. (a) pulverize cmm sample, pass through a no2 sieve and mix well accurately weigh 2-3 g (3-5 g for the determination of acid-insoluble ash) of the powdered sample in a tared crucible (to the nearest 001 g) ignite the sample gently until completely carbonized, keep it from burning, then gradually increase the temperature. E1534 - 93(2013) standard test method for determination of ash content of particulate wood fuels , ash, biomass, wood fuel.
W = weight (g) of sample 14007 = atomic weight of nitrogen 625 = the protein- nitrogen conversation factor for fish and its by-products 3 determination of ash content (aoac, 2000) method 1 place the crucible and lid in the furnace at 550 °c overnight to ensure that impurities on the surface of crucible are burned off 2. Factors affecting the determination of the ash content of the tibiae of chicks r m bethke and p r record ohio agricultural experiment station, wooster (received for publication march 14, 1933) ' i vhe need for the standardization of -• the bone-ash method for determining the extent or degree of calcification. Procedure title: determination of ash in biomass laboratory analytical procedure 1 introduction 11 the amount of inorganic material in biomass, either structural or extractable, should be measured as part of the total composition structural ash is inorganic material that is bound in the physical structure of the biomass,. The official method for ash content determination in honey is gravimetry10 this technique, in spite of being widely used in routine honey analysis, involves extensive manipulation of sample by the analyst, large sample masses, long analysis times, and sample pre-treatment before incineration that depends on the nature of.
This international standard specifies a method for the determination of the ash content of petroleum products, such as distillate and residual fuel oils, crude petroleum, lubricating oils, waxes and other petroleum products, in which any ash-forming constituents present are normally considered to be undesirable impurities or. Ash content analysis of plastics astm d2584, astm d5630, iso 3451 scope: an ash test is used to determine if a material is filled the test will identify the total filler content it cannot identify individual percentages in multi-filled materials without additional test procedures being performed an ash test cannot be used to. Ash refers to the inorganic residue remaining after either ignition or complete oxidation of organic matter in a food sample determining the ash content of a food is part of proximate analysis for. According to the regulatory authorities, the presence of ash up to 5% is acceptable, more than this helps in determining the age of the food how to prepare samples to perform the ash test, preparing the sample is a crucial part the food sample has to be in powdered form any moisture content present is dried first and it.
However, information on proximate composition of some fish species is scanty thus, there is still a need to research on the proximate composition of such fish species this project was designed to determine the moisture, protein, fat, and ash contents of four tropical fish species which are readily available and consumed in. As for the absorption at 1930 nm which is assigned to moisture, near-infrared spectrum has the most appreciable influence of the size of flour particle because absorption coefficient due to moisture is exceedingly large in com- parison to other components, an interaction of flour particle with moisture affects the spectrum.
