Economic Implications of Combining Dockage and Foreign Material in the Grading Standards for Wheat. Report Submitted to the Federal Grain Inspection Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. Commercial treatment of wheat dockage differs drastically across exporting countries. In Canada and Australia, regulations ensure that only minimal levels of dockage are contained in exports and these are uniform across importing countries. In the United States, dockage is not a factor in the grading system. o In wheat, when dockage is present, it will always be listed last. Sample #7 • Grade Factors Line o Fill out only those factors that contribute to the designation of the grade o Other boxes should be left blank o Not all boxes are used for all grain types (ex. In corn, the box “foreign material” will never be used) oFile Size: KB. High production costs in the home country relative to the foreign target country encourage entry modes involving local production, such as licensing, contract manufacturing and investment. The policy of the home government toward exporting and foreign investment by domestic firms also has significant effect.

Foreign materialsincluding metal, glass, wood and other materialsthat may be found in the processing environment or that come in with raw materials are potential contaminants of finished the products. Foreign materials in food products constitute “filth” within the definition of adulteration under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. When people think of foreign material removal, the first operations that come to mind are metal detectors, X-ray machines, magnets and electronic sorters. There are other tools to remove foreign materials, including air blowers, flumes, sizers, reels, and screens, sieves and filters. Foreign-Material Reduction Programs—An Integrated Approach Using Teamwork. By Natasha Rowley-Phipps. Foreign material can be a difficult and costly issue in food manufacturing. The sources of foreign material seem to be endless, while the detection systems have limits and can be expensive. It has been common practice to use detection. The retention factor for a chemical during thin layer chromatography is a measure of how far it moves up the plate in response to the solvent movement. Since the absolute movement of the chemical depends on how far the solvent travels, you calculate retention factor values relative to the degree of .

grading factor. A grading factor is a physical condition of grain, the result of growing conditions, handling procedures or storage practices. It is a visual characteristic that indicates a reduction in quality; for example, frost damage, sprouted kernels, or heated kernels. Only relevant grading factors are shown as reasons for a grade. “Iron filings” should be treated as dockage or foreign material, and if a substantial amount of particles is found in a sample the sample/lot would be considered as DLQ and graded as U.S. Sample Grade. Record the count and weight of the iron filings on the work record and report the. Wheat grades are indicators of the purity of a wheat class or subclass, the effects of external factors on grain soundness (rain, heat, frost, insect and mould damage) and the cleanliness (dockage and foreign material) of the wheat lot. Grain protein content and alpha-amylase activity (enzymatic activity associated with the germination of the. course material, teachers role in the class, technology used in the class and exams systems. External classroom factors include extracurricular activities, family problems, work and financial, social and other problems. Research studies shows that students’ performance depends on many factors such as learning.
