Evaluation of a Low Phytic Acid Gene in Wheat Grant uri icon



  • The presence of phytic acid in wheat grain contributes to water pollution and increases the cost of animal feed. Our research is designed to test the feasibility of having low phytic acid wheat grain as part of US food production system to produce flour for human consumption and mill feed (bran and other by-products of milling) for non-ruminant animals.
