Flashcards in Lab - Determination of Moisture Deck (16)
Water that is chemically bonded as hydrate/water of crystallization
Water that is physically bound as monolayer to surface of food constituents
Water that is essentially a sep.constituent
involves the weight lost from a food item/sample due to the evaporation of water at or near the boiling point in a thermostatically-controlled oven.
Drying or Oven Method
another name for Drying/Oven Method
Indirect Distillation Method
