AACCI Method 55-31.01
Single-Kernel Characterization System for Wheat Kernel Texture

VIEW METHOD

Objective
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.
