Research Project: ASSAY OF BIOACTIVE PHYTOCHEMICALS FROM FOODS AND FOOD PRODUCTS

Location: Food Composition and Methods Development Lab

Project Number: 8040-52000-060-13
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 30, 2010
End Date: Aug 14, 2014

Objective:
This research project is to develop analytical methods for phenolics and antioxidants in samples provided by USDA-ARS Western Wheat Quality Laboratory.

Approach:
Samples provided by USDA-ARS Western Wheat Quality Laboratory will be initially used for optimization of sample preparation procedures for extraction of phenolic phytochemicals from wheat samples. Different cultivars of wheat samples will be used to collect spectral fingerprints and determine whether spectral fingerprinting methods can be used to differentiate wheat samples based on cultivar or other phytochemical traits.
