Gluten determination in flour using standard method 38-11 (AACC 1983) requires air-oven drying of wet gluten. This step in the determination of gluten takes >24 h. Use of a microwave oven to dry wet gluten rapidly was investigated. Gluten was determined in 10 commercial flour samples. The coeff. of variation between air-oven and microwave oven methods was 0.89 and s.d. from the linear regression line was 0.12. The protein contents of air-oven- and microwave-oven-dried gluten were 81.87 and 81.63%, respectively. The optimum microwave power level was 560 W. Using the microwave oven, drying time could be reduced to 7-9 min depending on sample size.
