To determine wheat quality, an experimental 80 g variant (mini-RMT) of the standard 1050 g Rapid Mix Test (RMT) was developed. Ten samples of wheat flour with known RMT values were analysed using the method. Results showed a strong correlation between RMT and mini-RMT values (r = 0.96). Mini-RMT bread volumes were smaller on average by 47.4 ml. A regression equation was constructed allowing the mini-RMT to be used in place of the RMT in wheat breeder laboratories. Anyway, these results are of limited plausibility due to the limited sample numbers and have to be verified on a larger sample set.Keywords:
