pH Meter Review - edge® for Winemakers

About the Author

Neil Shay has a PhD in biochemistry and has supervised a federally funded research program in academia for over 20 years. In 2016, Neil and his wife Sue are opening a winery in Oregon.

I decided it was time to step up to a ‘real’ pH meter after deciding to go into commercial wine production after more than fifteen years of wine making as an amateur.

Up to now, I used a series of ‘stick’ handheld pH meters to help me with my hobby wine endeavors. Time to move up to research grade analysis.

Determining Salt in Food

Are you analyzing salt in food? There are a number of ways to measure salt in food. Here's a breakdown of the different methods.

About Salt in Food

Sodium occurs both naturally and as an additive in food products. It is commonly added to food products in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) but can also be added in other forms including sodium nitrite, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), sodium benzoate, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). These compounds are added to foods to enhance flavor, act as a binder, and/or to inhibit microbial growth to extend the shelf life of a product.

It is estimated that up to 75% of our dietary intake of sodium comes from packaged or restaurant food

Phosphorus in Saltwater Reef Aquariums

Phosphorus is an essential element for all life forms.

While phosphorus is vital for growth in plants and animals, it can be problematic for aquaria inhabitants, particularly coral. In water, phosphorus exists almost solely in the form of phosphate, or PO43-. There are several forms of phosphate, but the two forms most important for aquaria are organophosphate and orthophosphate.

Determination of Chloride in Cement

Concrete is a common material used in the construction industry. It is used to build roads, buildings, dams and swimming pools, to name just a few applications. Concrete is a mixture of aggregate (crushed stone), cement, and water. The cement is the admixture that bonds the aggregate together. The most common type of cement is Portland cement. Portland cement was discovered in the 1800’s when a British stonemason, Joseph Aspdin, heated a mixture of limestone and clay, pulverized the substance into a fine powder, and found that mixing the powder with water caused it to harden.
