Atlas 66, a soft wheat, has been used since 1953 as a genetic source of higher protein in wheat. Eleven high- protein Atlas 66 X Comanche lines with a range of endosperm hardness, and parent varieties, were evaluated for their air-classification and baking properties. The coarse fraction from Atlas 66 was 3.7% higher in protein content than the parent flour. Its "pastry fraction" was higher in protein content than that normally separated from a low-protein soft wheat flour. High-protein lines with soft endosperm exhibited fractionation properties similar to those of Atlas 66. Therefore, a completely new scheme for product use would be necessary in the air classification of high-protein soft wheats derived from Atlas 66. Air-classified fractions were blended to 12% flour protein for the baking evaluation. Dough-mixing properties ranged between the parental types. Five selections were equal to Comanche in loaf volume and bread rating.
