Crude Protein -- Combustion Method
Nitrogen, freed by pyrolysis and subsequent combustion at high temperature in pure oxygen, is quantified by thermal conductivity detection. This generic combustion method is applicable to all flours, cereal grains, oilseeds, and animal feeds. Different conversion factors are used for various cereal grains and oilseeds.
