Overview:

One of the most significant nutritional components of food is protein.  The accurate and precise determination of protein not only plays a role in the characterization of nutritional or dietary value in food materials but is also key to the economic value of these materials. Protein in foods is calculated using the measured nitrogen in the sample and a multiplier based on the food matrix.
