Final Report: UA00077 - Characterisation and recombination of wheat grain components that determine colour and colour stability in Asian noodles

Plain text source: 
The project has provided new information on noodle colour and colour stability and in particular germplasm and screening technologies required by wheat breeders to significantly reduce polyphenol oxidase (PPO), a significant component of noodle darkening... Substantial progress has been made towards optimising levels or activities of some components, e.g. PPO, xanthophyll and lipoxygenase, whilst further research is required to realise potential improvements in other components... The procedure is technically demanding but will provide an accurate measure of apigenin content that is required for germplasm surveys and QTL location...
