For a non-destructive determination of the protein content in soya bean samples, 14-MeV neutron activation analysis /NAA/ was applied. To check the method, results obtained by X-ray fluorescence /XRF/ analysis and the Kjeldahl procedure were compared. For pressed pellet samples of about 1 g and choosing 15 min irradiation and 10 min measuring times the accuracy of the protein determination was found to be 15%.
