ABSTRACT



Properties of grain and starch from varieties of wheat with different technological quality were measured. It appeared that besides the well known wheat properties such as high gluten content and medium enzymatic activity, the content of soluble carbohydrates is also important from the baking point of view. Moreover, medium solubility, not too low phosphorus content and high molecular mass of starch (isolated from wheat varieties) are essential to good quality of wheat.

Key words: wheat, technological value, chemical components, physico-chemical properties
