Falling Number System
The international standard method for determination of alpha-amylase activity in grain and flour.
The Falling Number System measures the alpha-amylase enzyme activity in grains and flour to detect sprout damage, optimise flour enzyme activity and guarantee soundness of traded grain. Alpha-amylase activity is crucial for final product quality of bread, pasta, noodles and malt.
Only Perten Falling Number® instrument models follow all international standards such as AACCI 56-81.03, ISO/DIS 3093, ICC 107/1 and EEC 689/92.
Available in 2 models: FN1000 for 2 placer falling number testing and FN1500 for single placer falling number testing.
