Paper Abstract

Discrimination of added water (D2O) applied at the surface of grain from naturally occurring water already present before the moisture `tempering' process is possible. Cross sections of grain were examined by FT-IR microspectroscopic techniques to measure the inward migration of the D2O applied at the surface of the grain kernel prior to sectioning. The relative ability for uptake and retention of water by localized morphologically distinct regions of the kernel were observed and mapped from moving stage data accumulations.
