Substandard, regardless of the total score for the product (limiting rule). § 52.6212 Character.
(a) General. The factor of character refers to the tenderness and maturity of the peas; and the tenderness and degree of freedom from stringy or coarse fibers in the carrots.
(b) (A) Classification. Canned peas and carrots which possess a good character may be given a score of 27 to 30 points. Good character means that:
(1) Carrots. The carrot units are tender, are not fibrous, and possess a practically uniform texture.
(2) Peas. The peas are at least reasonably tender and comply with the requirements of Table III.
(c) (B) Classification. If the canned peas and carrots possess a reasonably good character, a score of 24 to 26 points may be given. Canned peas and carrots that fall into this classification shall not be graded above U.S. Grade B, regardless of the total score for the product (limiting rule). "Reasonably good character" means that:
(1) Carrots. The carrot units are at least reasonably tender, may be variable in texture but are not tough, hard, or mushy; and not more than 5 percent, by weight, of the carrot ingredient may possess coarse, fibrous material.

METHODS OF ANALYSES
§ 52.6213 Methods of analyses.
(a) Brine flotation test. The brine flotation test utilizes salt solutions of various specific gravities to separate the peas according to maturity. The brine solutions are based on the percentage, by weight, of pure salt (NaCl) in solution. In making the test a 250 ml. glass beaker is filled with the brine solution to a depth of approximately 2 inches. The brine equipment, solution, and peas should be at the same temperature. Only peas that sink to the bottom of the receptacle within 10 seconds after immersion are counted as "peas that sink". Pieces of peas and loose skins should not be used in making the brine flotation test.
Ascertaining the grade of a
The grade of a lot of canned peas and carrots covered by these standards is determined by the procedures set forth in the Regulations Governing Inspection and Certification of Processed Fruits and Vegetables, Processed Products thereof, and Certain Other Processed Food Products (§§ 52.1 to 52.87).
