Maize

The quality of maize, used as raw material for milling industry production, is determined by the Regulation on the quality of grain, mill and bakery products, pasta and quickly frozen dough.

(Official Gazette, no. 52/95 and Official Gazette of SMN, no. 56/2003 and 4 / 2004).

The quality of maize as raw material for industrial processing and animal feed is determined by the Institute for Standards, by the standard SRBS E.B3.516 from 1982, with changes JUS E.B3.516/1 from 1991.

Maize put on the market must be ripe, healthy, of characteristic appearance, scent and taste, without any sign of mildew, uninfected with diseases and pests in development or higher development stadium. 

Maize put on the market must be in accordance with legal provisions on minimal conditions, determined by the Regulation on microbiological safety of food in circulation (Official Gazette 26/93, 53/95, 46/02), and provisions on maximal allowed amounts of pesticides, metals, metalloids and other toxic substances, chemotherapeutics, anabolics and other substances that can be found in food (Official Gazette 53/91, 11/92, 32/02).

Maize is sorted in classes depending on the content of impurities.
