Modified Sedimentation Test for Wheat

VIEW METHOD

Objective
This method is especially applicable to very strong wheats at high protein levels, since maximum sedimentation value obtainable by Method 56-61.02 is not sufficiently high to reflect their true quality, a condition referred to as "ceiling effect." In its purpose and principle, this method is similar to Method 56-61.02. It differs from Method 56-61.02 in two ways: First, the volume of reagent is doubled to eliminate "ceiling effect," and second, the normality of reagent is reduced proportionately to maintain the same final acidity as in Method 56-61.02.
