Identification  : Budding rate: Carry out the method for sampling of crude drugs (Appendix ll A) taking 10g of the drug in two portions diagonally determine the amount of the budding grains and of the total grains, calculate the percentage of budding rate. The budding rate is not less than 85%.

Processing  : eliminate foreign matterStir fried: stir fry as described under the method for simple stir frying (Appendix ll D) until its outer part becomes brown, cool and sift.Charred: Stir fry as described under the method for simple stir frying (Appendix ll D) until its outer part becomes dark brown.
