Lab tests confirm high wheat quality

Lab results from a province-wide survey indicate this year’s wheat crop was excellent quality, reports Grain Farmers of Ontario.

“Hard red winter wheat, soft red winter wheat, and soft white winter wheat results all show an excellent quality,” the GFO says.

“The protein and ash content are ideal for flat bread, noodle, pizza dough, and other applications.

“Furthermore, with low levels of sprouting and enzyme activity, a longer shelf life can be expected for end products.”

Testing was conducted at the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory in Guelph, Ontario, a joint venture between Grain Farmers of Ontario and SGS Canada.
