Key Programs and Services

The Wheat Marketing Center (WMC) is one of the technical crossroads of the international wheat industry, providing technical training and grower workshops, innovative research, product development, and crop quality testing services. WMC focuses on promoting U.S. wheat by demonstrating its quality and functionality in Asian noodles, crackers and biscuits, tortillas and flatbread, and other baked products. Pilot scale production lines (pictured above), state-of-the-art quality testing equipment, and rich technical expertise provide great value to our state wheat commission partners, wheat industry stakeholders, and millers and food manufacturers around the world.

This Week: September 20-26

This week the CQ team is focused on flour analysis. The milling of PNW composite samples is complete and the lab team is performing the range of flour tests including protein, ash, wet gluten, falling number and SRC. Bon and Kin may also start on cookie baking if time allows. Janice will provide an update to the Oregon Wheat Commission, and we say goodbye to CQ intern Michelle Wong. Michelle was a great asset this season and we wish her the best as she returns to her studies at Portland State University.
