For a considerable length of time, the winter wheat produced in Hungary, together with other crops, made Hungary the breadbasket of Europe. The high quality of the wheat yield made it a popular commodity on markets in Western and Southern Europe. Although the Hungarian wheat quality control system does not include alveograph analysis, a knowledge of the alveograph quality of winter wheat is essential for these export markets. Although the Chopin alveograph was developed in France, the principles on which it is based were elaborated by Jenö Hankoczy, the inventor of the farinograph, in 1905. There is an increasing demand for information on this flour quality parameter. The present paper discusses the factors influencing the alveograph quality of winter wheat and its correlation with other quality parameters, based on results published by Hungarian and foreign scientists. Despite the large volume of literature on wheat quality, the Hungarian database on the alveograph analysis of winter wheat varieties is still limited, so this work will fill a gap.
