24 Indian and 3 Canadian durum wheat var. have been evaluated for physico-chemical characteristics, rheological properties using farinograph and extensograph and the flour milling quality. Of the quality characteristics evaluated, some of the Indian var. were comparable to or even better than the Canadian durums. The data for var. NI-5759, A-11, HI-7720, HD-4519, HD-4530, A-9-30-1 were indicative of their potential for the preparation of paste goods; while quality characteristics of many other var. showed their potential for bread making. The range and average (in parentheses) values for different quality characteristics were: 1000 kernel wt., 34.6-53.1 (43.8) g; pearling index, 13.2-20.5 (16.1); crude protein, 10.6-16.8 (14.6)%; wet gluten, 28.2-52.6 (40.7)%; pigments, 2.72-6.47 (4.6) ppm; diastatic activity, 302-443 (369) units; damaged starch, 9.3-15.5 (12.7)%; water absorption, 62.0-75.0 (67.9)%; dough stability, 2.0-10.0 (6.1) min.; extensograph area, 10-140 (79) cm-2; and flour yield, 58.3-75.5 (65.8)%.
