AACC Method 44-01.01
Calculation of Percent Moisture

VIEW METHOD

Objective
This method determines moisture content in flour, grain, and various food and feed products by using a simple, acceptable formula. The formula is often used in connection with tables in Methods 82-21.01, 82-22.01, and 82-23.01. In this method, an oven is often used. Alternatively, electrical devices, referred to as moisture meters or moisture testers, are employed. Manufacturers of these instruments will furnish conversion tables for their use, but instruments should be calibrated under conditions of actual use in comparison with oven methods.
