Objective
Ash is the inorganic residue remaining after high-temperature incineration and is often included as part of the proximate analysis. This analytical method is a procedure to measure the ash content of flours, feeds, feedstuffs, other dry foods, and some food ingredients. In the case of wheat flour and related products, ash may be used as an indicator of residual bran content.
