Cereal Moisture


Controlling Moisture in Cereal

All cereal—whether flaked, puffed, rolled, shredded, shaped, hot or cold, sugar-coated or plain—must meet certain moisture level requirements in order to achieve cereal’s trademark long shelf life. Both temperature and moisture levels must be constantly monitored to ensure proper cooking and shaping. All of this requires accurate and reliable moisture testing instruments. Is cereal moisture a crucial step in your production process? MoistTech manufactures the best possible solution for your facility.

At MoistTech Corp., we recognize that moisture content is a crucial factor in achieving the desired taste and crunchiness of cereals. Our cereal moisture testing solutions bring our state-of-the-art moisture measurement techniques to you, so you can revolutionize your cereal production process. Discover how our solutions empower you to maintain consistent moisture levels, resulting in cereals that meet the highest standards of quality and flavor.

Understand the Process

Here at MoistTech, we have developed a series of high-tech sensors to detect moisture in a variety of materials. We utilize near-infrared (NIR) technology for a non-contact solution to moisture content readings. NIR is insensitive to material variations, such as particle size or color, and they provide an accurate, continuous reading.
