Soft Wheat Flour Particle-Size Analysis by Integrated Sieve and Coulter Counter Procedures.
D. H. Donelson and W. T. Yamazaki. Copyright 1972 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc.
A procedure is described for particle-size distribution analysis of coarse soft wheat flour. Sieving was integrated with Coulter Counter analysis of particles at two suspension concentrations. Flours from pure- variety wheats milled under conditions producing varying proportions of coarse, medium, or fine particles gave mass-median diameters and 80%-range values indicative of inherent endosperm texture as reflected by Particle Size Index. Relative granulation characteristics of varieties were not adversely affected by season of crop growth.
