A Rapid Method for Quantifying Total Anthocyanins in Blue Aleurone and Purple Pericarp Wheats
ABSTRACT A simple, rapid method for determining total anthocyanins was developed for use in developing wheat cultivars with dark-blue grains. The method was evaluated as a screening test and forExpand

Identification and quantification of seed carotenoids in selected wheat species.
Selected primitive and modern wheat species were evaluated on the basis of their carotenoid composition and effects of the genotype and environment on lutein using spectrometry and liquidExpand

Out-crossing rates for 10 Canadian spring wheat cultivars
The genetic purity of pedigreed wheat seed can be compromised by inter-cultivar cross-pollination. Common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is assumed to be highly self-pollinated, an assumption that hasExpand

Pollen-mediated gene flow in wheat at the commercial scale
Currently, information is lacking on gene flow in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) at distances greater than 300 m based on commercial-scale fields. The objective of this research was to measureExpand

Phenolic acid composition and antioxidant capacity of acid and alkali hydrolysed wheat bran fractions
Abstract Phenolic acid concentrations, profiles and antioxidant capacity of acid and alkali hydrolysates from the bran of six wheat cultivars representing six Canadian market classes were determined.Expand

Separation and Characterization of A- and B-Type Starch Granules in Wheat Endosperm
ABSTRACT Mature wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) endosperm contains two types of starch granules: large A-type and small B-type. Two methods, microsieving or centrifugal sedimentation through aqueousExpand

Application of molecular markers to wheat breeding in Canada
Marker-assisted breeding provides an opportunity for wheat breeders to introgress/pyramid genes of interest into breeding lines and to identify genes and/or quantitative trait loci in germplasm to beExpand

Physicochemical and structural characteristics of flours and starches from waxy and nonwaxy wheats
ABSTRACT A waxy spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) genotype was fractionated into flour and starch by roller and wet-milling, respectively. The resultant flour and starch were evaluated for end-useExpand

Isolation distances for minimizing out-crossing in spring wheat
Currently recommended isolation distances of 3 or 10 m for pedigreed seed production of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) may not be sufficient for cultivars with high out-crossing (OC) rates. TheExpand
