This International Standard specifies a rapid method for the determination of the oil and water contents of commercial oilseeds using pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). It is applicable to rapeseeds, soya beans, linseeds and sunflower seeds with a water content less than 10 %. For seeds with higher water contents, drying is necessary before the oil content can be determined by pulsed NMR. NOTE 1 This method has been tested with rapeseeds, soya beans, linseeds and sunflower seeds. This does not, however, preclude its applicability to other commercial seeds whose oil is liquid at the temperature of measurement. NOTE 2 The reproducibility values are generally higher than those obtained by the drying method (ISO 665)
