The quality properties of different variety mixtures and composite cross populations were studied with the aim of identifying genotypes with high dietary fiber content and to cultivate and examine the effect of these components on the end-use quality. Based on the results of a Europe-wide trial, we could detect two populations and variety mixtures which had significantly higher total (TOTAX) and water extractable arabinoxylan (WEAX) content, than most of the studied genotypes, with positive effect on the human health. These populations/mixtures are promising dietary fiber resources and suitable not only for organic but also for conventional farming, especially in Central Europe. The seeds of the best population (Mv Elit CCP) was multiplied to supply it for interested farmers in Hungary in the frame of the European trial on organic heterogeneous materials.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Health promoting functional food produced from wheat population with high fiber content could be a profitable target of wheat growing for (organic) farmers.
What problem does the tool address?:Low genetic diversity of wheat cultivation in the fields and lack of health promoting traits in the end products.
What solution does the tool offer?:Variety mixtures and diverse populations of wheat are worth being examined and used selected ones to improve the choice of functional foods.
Type of Practice Tool:Other type of tool
Other Type:scientific proceeding
