Single-Kernel Characterization System for Wheat Kernel Texture
Wheat kernel texture (degree of hardness or softness) is determined by instrumental measurement of the force required to crush wheat kernels. The single-kernel characterization system (SKCS) instrument is calibrated to compute kernel texture by AACC Method 39-70.02 or a modification of Method 55-30.01, using a cyclone (impeller-type) sample mill. This method is applicable to all wheats and hull-less barley.
