The method is based on preparation of a suspension of flour in water, followed by recording of the viscosity of the suspension which is heated at a constant rate from 30 °C to the temperature corresponding to the moment at which viscosity starts to decrease, having reached its maximum (approximately 95 °C). Applies to wheat and rye flour and also to wheat and rye grain.

ISO 11085:2015 specifies procedures for the determination of the fat content of cereals, cereal-based products, and animal feeding stuffs. These procedures are not applicable to oilseeds and oleaginous fruits.
The choice of procedure to be used depends on the nature and composition of the material analysed and the reason for carrying out the analysis.
Procedure A is a method for the determination of directly extractable crude fats, applicable to all materials, except those included within the scope of procedure B.
Procedure B is a method for the determination of total fats, applicable to all materials from which the oils and fats cannot be completely extracted without prior hydrolysis.
NOTE          Most cereals, as well as feeds of animal origin, yeasts, potato protein, compound feeds with milk products, glutens, and products subjected to processes such as extrusion, flaking, and heating, yield significantly higher total fat contents when tested by procedure B than by procedure A. See Annex B.

The term impurities applies to all components of a grain sample that differ from the normal basic cereal. It includes the following groups: broken grains, other cereals, grains damaged by pests, grains overheated during drying, sprouted grains, extraneous seeds, unsound grains, extraneous matter and impurities of animal origin.
The principle of the determination of impurities content is to separate all the groups of impurities from the normal basic cereal grains of unimpaired quality by sieving and manual selection out of a subsample and to quantify them. There are various problems in the determination of impurities:
Firstly, the identification of the different groups of impurities depends strongly on the experience and the knowledge of the investigator.
Also experienced investigators can differ in their characterization of grains.
Finally, one is faced with the fact that grain, even after mixing, is rarely homogenous. In other words, if a sample was divided by a sample divider into a number of portions, the amount of a specific group of impurities in each portion could be different, even if absolutely no human or machine error occurred in each determination.
These problems will result in variation of the results of the determination.
An international interlaboratory test for the determination of impurities, according to this standard and involving 14 laboratories in 4 countries, was carried out with 5 maize and 3 sorghum samples. It was asked to participants to make determination in duplicate.
Ten laboratories reported results for the complete sample set and two only for corns.
The test materials ranged between:
-   0,0 % and 2,7 % for broken grains;
-   0,2 % and 3,5 % for grain impurities;
-   0,0 % and 0,1 % for sprouted grains;
-   0,5 % and 3,3 % for miscellaneous impurities;
-   1,8 % and 8,7 % for total impurities.
The aim of the study is to determine the precision, repeatability and reproducibility of the method of determination of impurities content in maize and sorghum samples.
The analyses were realized in March - April 2011.
It occurs according to the ISO 5725:1994.

The term "Besatz" applies to all components of a grain sample that differ from the normal basic cereal. It includes the following groups: broken grains, shrivelled grains, other cereals, grains damaged by pests, grains with discoloured germ, grains overheated during drying, sprouted grains, extraneous seeds, unsound grains, ergot, bunted grains, extraneous matter, husks and impurities of animal origin. The amount of Besatz and its constituent groups is important for health, cleaning, milling and further processing aspects. For these reasons Besatz is a component of contracts in grain trade and also of the grain intervention system of EU. The principle of the determination of Besatz is to separate all the groups of Besatz from the normal basic cereal grains of unimpaired quality by sieving and manual selection out of a subsample and to quantify them. There are various problems in the determination of Besatz: Firstly, the identification of the different groups of Besatz depends strongly on the experience and the knowledge of the investigator. Also experienced investigators can differ in their characterization of grains. Finally, one is faced with the fact that grain, even after mixing, is rarely homogenous. In other words, if a sample was divided by a sample divider into a number of portions, the amount of a specific group of Besatz in each portion could be different, even if absolutely no human or machine error occurred in each determination. These problems will result in variation of the results of the determination.
An international interlaboratory trial for the determination of Besatz in common wheat, durum wheat and rye was accomplished with 15 laboratories in order to get information on the intra- and interlaboratory variability of the determination of Besatz.
The Technical Report here describes the preparation and evaluation of the results of this interlaboratory test.

Both methods are applicable to rice with an amylose mass fraction higher than 5 %.
NOTE    These methods describe simplified procedures for the preparation of samples, which are frequently used in routine laboratories. The methods use the same reagents as the reference method (see ISO 6647-1), but omit the defatting step. Rice samples where the amylose mass fraction has been determined by the reference method are used as standards.
