Laboratory Reference Samples

Cereals & Grains Association offers laboratory reference samples as an additional way for laboratories to check their accuracy. Values have been determined for the samples through a collaborative method study.

Laboratory reference samples are purchased by laboratories as needed - they are not available as a subscription.

About the Reference Samples

The reference samples provided are Beta-Glucan (BG) and Dietary Fiber (TDF). These are held in cold storage, a procedure that helps to maintain product consistency over time.

Reference Samples will be available for purchase through our bookstore very shortly. If you would like to place an order now, please contact us at checksample@cerealsgrains.org
