Cereal Chemistry Laboratory (CCL)

The Cereal Chemistry Laboratory (CCL) is a multifunctional lab in Kansas State University's Department of Grain Science and Industry. Located in the Shellenberger Hall, the CCL has professional staff and well-equipped facilities to conduct research related to cereal science and grain-based products. We work closely with other departments, universities, and industries to provide research, consulting, training and testing services related to cereal products.
