Application Note: Moisture and ash determination in biscuits
30 March 2023

In this application note, Verder Scientific shows how to determine moisture and ash in biscuits using an ELTRA analyzer. ELTRA’s TGA Thermostep is a thermogravimetric analyzer which determines various parameters such as moisture, volatiles and ash at user-defined temperatures and atmospheres in a single analysis. Thermogravimetry is a standard method to analyze organic, inorganic and synthetic materials. Thermogravimetric analysis in general means the measurement of the weight loss during a user-defined temperature or heating process.
