Significance and Use
This test method is intended for the determination of the neutral fatty matter contained in fats and oils by means of ether extraction.
1.1 This test method covers all degraded glycerides, since they are neutral fats. However, this procedure does not necessarily determine all the mono and diglycerides that may be present in the sample. This is due to the water soluble characteristics of some mono and diglycerides.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
