Why are we undertaking this project?
Many sectors (including cereal, baking and brewing) rely on the quality and safety of cereal-based raw materials,
ingredients and products. Analytical methods play an important part in assuring this. These methods must be developed, trialled, standardised,
What are we doing as part of this project?
Developing and maintaining industry agreed methods to measure and therefore control the quality and safety of cereal-based
ingredients. We will also investigate new instrumentation and testing methods to assess the physical characteristics of grains and related
ingredients, including their functionality. Finally, the project will develop and evaluate methods to assess end-product quality.
