Percent Moisture

This method is used to determine the percent moisture within the sample.  With whole soybeans, a 10 g sample is weighed into a moisture dish and dried in an oven at 130ºC for 3 hours.  Similarly, a 5 g sample of ground soybeans is weighed and dried in the oven for 2 hours.  After removing from the oven and cooling, the samples are weighed.
