Wheat Varieties

The UK Recommended List contains 40 wheat varieties, of which at least half are used by flour millers.

Wheat varieties are classified using the nabim system:

Group 1 - Varieties that produce consistent milling and baking performance

Group 2 - Varieties that have bread-making potential but are not suited to all grists

Group 3 - Varieties that are soft and suited to making biscuit, cake and other flours

Group 4 - These varieties are grown mainly as feed wheats
