Elemental composition of the flour fractions was affected by location and by variety. Total ash and the 7 elements studied were distributed quite differently among the 3 flour fractions. The significant relationships obtained between elemental composition of the flour fractions and baking quality indicate that mineral uptake by the wheat plant is an important factor in flour quality, although the data presented do not warrant conclusions regarding the exact mechanisms involved.
