Variability in dehydrodiferulic acid composition of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) and distribution in milling fractions



Variability in dehydrodiferulic acid composition of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) and distribution in milling fractions



Journal of Cereal Science 28(3): 251-258



The dehydrodiferulic acid content of different common and durum wheat grains and milling fractions was determined by an HPLC procedure. The 8-O-4', 5-8' benzofuran, 5-8' and 5-5' dehydrodimers were identified in all samples studied and occurred in decreasing relative amounts, respectively. Durum wheats were twice as concentrated in dimers as common wheats. An important genetic variation for dehydrodiferulic acid content was shown within durum wheat grains, whereas the agronomic conditions had no effect. There was 10 to 20 times more dehydrodiferulic acids in external layers (aleurone, bran) than in the starchy endosperm of durum wheat grains. The content and composition in dimers of the inner endosperm did not vary according to genotypes and cultivation conditions. The ratio of dehydrodimers to monomers of ferulic acid which represented an index of dimerisation, was 1(.)6 times higher in the external layers of the grain than in the endosperm. No relation was found, however, between the degree of ferulic acid dimerisation and the milling behaviour of durum wheat grains.
