Sample preparation:
Mix 100 g pickled cabbage (weighed exactly) with 200 ml water for analysis of 60 °C and crush with a home mixer. Transfer the crushed pickled cabbage into a big beaker quantitatively with water for analysis and heat on the steam bath to 75 - 80 °C for 1 hour. After cooling transfer the mixture into a 500-ml volumetric flask and fill up to volume with water for analysis. Filter off the undissolved parts of the pickled cabbage with a folded filter.
Pipette 25 ml of the filtrate into a 250-ml volumetric flask and fill up to volume with water for analysis. This solution is used for determination of chloride, in some cases a second filtration through a membrane filter might be required.
The chloride content in pickled cabbage brine can be determined in the same way after a dilution of 1:50 with water for analysis.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
Chloride content in g/kg Cl = analysis value in mg/l Cl x 0.05
Sodium chloride content in g/kg NaCl = analysis value in mg/l Cl x 0.0825
