Whole grains are well established as contributing to a healthy diet. In the case of oats, a key constituent associated with whole grain nutrition is β-glucan. Consequently, there is a need for the accurate and efficient measurement of the trait in oat breeding populations. Newell and colleagues developed and tested a microenzymatic method on 50 oat lines against the existing streamlined method and found a high level of agreement. The modified method provides an efficient means of phenotyping oat germplasm for this important end-use quality trait.
