The mixograph analysis of flour dough of 12 winter triticale varieties and accessions grown in the Central region of Belarus in 2013—2014 was carried out. Seeds of winter and spring wheat and winter rye were used for comparison. Baking absorption and the dynamics of dough viscosity at different temperature regimes were evaluated. Correlational relationships between physico-chemical properties and mixograph parameters of winter triticale and winter wheat flour were studied.

Keywords: Triticosecale Wittm. & A. Camus, physico-chemical properties of flour, mixograph analysis of dough, correlation dependencies
