Measurement of Oil and Water in Seeds According to ISO 10565:1998

Published 23 May 2014 | By Oxford Instruments

Accurate and fast determination of oil and water content is important to breeders, growers and buyers for determining the commercial value of oil-bearing crops such as rape (canola), sunflower, linseed, soya bean and groundnut. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) offers a clean, rapid and accurate alternative to traditional wet chemical techniques and calibrations are much easier to maintain than for Near Infra-Red (NIR). NMR is also used for measuring oil yield in development of improved crop varieties and by seed crushers to measure oil content of the press cake and residues to determine extraction efficiency (ISO 10632:2000).
