Moisture Analysis in Food Production

Jan 10, 2014 10:17:44 AM

Water is vital to sustaining life. In fact, every living organism that we know of requires sufficient water to thrive. Destructive bacteria and enzymes, however, also require sufficient water to thrive. Out of balance, too much water content multiplies the microorganisms that hasten decay. For this reason, moisture analysis becomes critical in food production. At least three things are making food processing and moisture control even more important.

1. A reliance on speed and convenience.

As our social norms lean more toward prioritization of speed and convenience, our processed and packaged foods have become more and more popular. Life is fast and full, and we have less time to build our meals from scratch. Food processing is an increasingly large industry.

Laboratories and businesses looking to make precision and minute measurements of mass need to have analytical balances. These balances are designed specifically for measuring minute masses less than a milligram precisely. Using these devices can take some time to learn the basics, but once understood, they become very easy to understand.

When to use an Analytical Balance

An analytical balance is to be used in conditions where knowing a precise mass is necessary. Knowing these precise measurements could be to ensure a safe product, reducing byproducts, or making a controlled budget of resources. An analytical balance will be able to measure the correct amounts of reagents and how much product was produced. Typically these balances can measure every 0.1 mg up to 200 g. Using these scales is similar but somewhat different than others.
