An econometric analysis of U.S. vital wheat gluten imports


  • Ortalo-Magne, Francois
  • Goodwin, Barry K.


In light of the wheat wet milling industry's development in the E. C. and of the prominent role U.S imports play in the international market for wheat gluten, this paper discusses the international market for wheat gluten, an important component of processed grain products. An econometric analysis of the U.S. import demand for wheat gluten is undertaken. The price of flour, income, and the U.S. value of wheat protein are found to be important determinants of wheat gluten imports.
