How can I measure the moisture content in food?
- The standard procedure is typically loss on drying using the drying oven. As this is a time-consuming procedure, the halogen moisture analyzer is often used as a fast, precise and reliable instrument to measure the moisture content in food.
How do the results of the moisture analyzer compare to the drying oven?
- It's important to develop a moisture content determination method that will give you the same moisture content result as the official drying oven method. METTLER TOLEDO has developed methods for a variety of samples from the food industry. Using these methods, you'll get results that match the results of the official method.
