Conclusions

  1. 1.

    It was shown that the previously developed aquametric methods, namely direct titration with Fischer reagent and the dynamic method, are applicable to the measurement of the moisture content of proteins. The determination error is ±0.3%.

     
  2. 2.

    During dehydration the equilibrium residual amount of water in the proteins depends on the temperature and on the moisture content and flow rate of the carrier gas.
