Type of Discolouration (i) Parts of the grain near the brush end are grey, greyish black or dark brown.

(ii) Parts of the grain are distinctly yellow.

(iii) Parts of the grain are orange red.

Grains which are bleached or pale but otherwise sound are not considered to be discoloured.

The condition known as black point, which is a brown, dark brown or almost black disc at the embryo end of the grain is not considered be discolouration due to weather damage.

[Issue 1] 56 [Rev.

2012] CAP.

338 National Cereals and Produce Board [Subsidiary] 3.

Physical Damage (i) Badly distorted grains (except shrivelled grain).

(The condition in which the seed coat appears loose and often bubbly, but is not actually torn, must be considered to be physically damaged.) 4.

Mould Infection (i) Small separate black spots scattered over the surface of the grain due to leaf blight (pyronophera trichostome).

(ii) Greyish black discolouration of the brush end of the grain due to black mould (Cladosporium herborum).

(iii) Pinkish red areas due to scab (Fusarium graminearum).

In cases where mould infection appears as spots on the grain, the total area in which the spots are spread shall be considered.

5.

Heat Damage: Heat damaged wheat displays the following defects, odour, colour, texture and chemical change.

(i) Odour.A typical characteristic smell akin to that of roasted wheat.

(ii) Colour.The surface colour, depending on the extent of heat damage, varies from reddish brown to black.

The endosperm colour is not normal white or opaque, but is brownish.

(iii) Texture.The affected grain is cut by a blade, or preferably by a grain cutter, and the cut surface may display a crumbly and brittle texture depending on the extent of heat damage.

(iv) The protein and starch has been denatured and this can be verified through rheological tests.
