    Sequential Precision Divider (SPD)

    Perten Instruments has designed a grain sample divider which allows the user to obtain a randomized sample from 50% down to 3.125% of a bulk sample in one single step. Five different crops were used to verify a prototype design in terms of randomization, and the theoretical maximum dividing capacity of 3.125%.

    Noodle flour quality - Using multivariate analysis on the RVA curve to predict Viscograph® results

    The pasting properties of flour provide a useful indication of its suitability for making noodles, bread, cakes, batters and other products. Flour pasting quality is now commonly measured using the Rapid Visco Analyser (RVA). Nonetheless many users still require the results to be converted to historical Viscograph® units for trade. Most commonly this is done by simple correlations. However multivariate analysis (MVA) offers a potentially superior method.

    Milling the perfect flour

    What is a perfect flour? It depends on the intended end-use and there is no single set of quality characteristics that meet all needs for all end products for which flour is an important ingredient. Flour is both a functional and nutritional ingredient and both sets of traits need to be measured, starting with wheat testing at the intake.

    How the RVA can contribute to understanding extruded foods and feeds

    The RVA can be used to evaluate all phases of extruded product during production, including raw material, dough, intermediates, dried half-products and final products. Pasting, mechanical and thermal pathways of starch degradation can be observed in the RVA curve, thus it is possible to use RVA paste rheology to assess the degree of cook of an extrudate.
