Falling Number® for Sprout Damage Detection

The Perten Falling Number® System measures the alpha-amylase enzyme activity in grains and flour to detect sprout damage, improve flour enzyme activity and guarantee soundness of traded grain. Alpha-amylase activity is crucial for the final product quality of bread, pasta, noodles and malt. Anyone handling wheat, barley, rye or sorghum intended for these applications will benefit from the Falling Number system.
