The Cereals and Cereal Applications Testing (CCAT) methods project has now replaced this project. View new project

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, and validated.

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.
