This method is used to determine the percent moisture within whole or ground grain samples. Using whole grains, an approximately 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 grain is weighed and dried in the oven for 2 hours. After removing from the oven and cooling to room temperature, the samples are weighed again and moisture content is determined by difference.
