 B-OF-2.4 injured-by-sprout

Portion for Analysis: Approximately 25 grams


Kernels and broken kernels of barley which, after pearling, contain a visible germ area showing evidence of sprout, sprout socket, or a significant portion of the germ missing (2/3 or more) are considered "Injured-by-Sprout" (IBS). Also consider kernels as IBS if the germ area has been broken off and the remaining kernel is at least 2/3 of a whole kernel.


NOTE:Injured-by-Sprout does not function as damage.
