Food products - Determination of the total nitrogen content by combustion according to the Dumas principle and calculation of the crude protein content -- Part 1: Oilseeds and animal feeding stuffs

This standard was last reviewed* in 2012.

*ISO standards are reviewed every five years.


ISO 16634-1:2008 specifies a method for the determination of the total nitrogen content and the calculation of crude protein content of oilseeds and animal feeding stuffs.

This method, like the Kjeldahl method, does not distinguish between protein nitrogen and non-protein nitrogen. For the calculation of protein content, various conversion factors are used.

This method is not applicable to milk and milk products.
