AACCI Method 44-30.01
Moisture and Volatile Matter in Fats and Shortenings

VIEW METHOD

Objective
To determine the amount of low molecular weight volatile material in most fats and oils. The method is not applicable to naphtha extraction greases that contain solvents of fairly high boiling point that are driven off with difficulty. If the presence of low molecular weight fatty acids is suspected, it may be necessary to use other tests.
