Turn Around Time
Type of Test
AOAC 935.43, 935.47, 937.09, 960.29 Chloride in Cheese, Meat, Seafood, Butter
5 to 10 Business Days
2.5 to 10 grams is analyzed from a homogenized sample
Salt Lower Detection Limit: 0.01 % Salt
Analysis Description: Sample undergoes preparation which releases the salt for detection; appropriate preparation is selected based upon the sample matrix.
The chloride ions present in the sample extraction solution are titrated with a silver nitrate solution and back titrated with potassium thiocyanate to a colorimetric endpoint.
This analysis presumes all of the chloride present is from NaCl and will not differentiate between other sources of Cl– including KCl, CaCl, etc.
