Food Laboratory needed for I SO 17678:2010 or IDF 202:2010 fat content testing in butter type product which contains both milk fat and vegetable fat.

First, we have an large, exceedingly water-insoluble, 400 kd carbohydrate that first needs to be dissolved in superheated water. (We have preliminary data indicating 200 degrees C is more than sufficient.) Second, while still dissolved (in superheated water) it needs to be ftransferred to and fragmented by any appropriate high energy method (e.g., French pressure cell press, sonication, high-temp cracking) while maintaining the superheated temps to ensure it remains in solution. With high temp and high energy fragmentation, we're hoping to achieve fragments with a normal distribution around 20 to 30 kd, sufficient for the fragments to be cool (tepid) water-soluble. If 20 to 30 kd is not small enough, then fragment further.
