Abstract

Husk is considered as the waste material separated from the grain during the conversion of oats into products. Husk can be considered as a material rich in organic and inorganic terms, as it is cheap and easy to obtain, does not cause environmental pollution, is transported from processing centers. In this study, 7 oat varieties registered in Turkey were used. The husks of the cultivars were separated from their husks in an air pressure husking machine. The husks were ground to pass through a 0.5 micron sieve and made ready for analysis. Mineral analysis was carried out in the separated husks. According to the results of the mineral substance analysis carried out in the husk samples, the amounts of Ca, Mg, K, Fe, Na, Si, Al, Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ba minerals in the oat husks are 1093.51-2619.68 mg/kg, 467.47-1806.83 mg/kg, respectively. 1105.42-1456.27 mg/kg, 515.75-1872.56 mg/kg, 105.69-869.05 mg/kg, 574.35-1069.74 mg/kg, 18.25-221 mg/kg, 10.02-60.73 mg/kg, 0.52-4.78 mg/kg, It was found between 0.98-1.59 mg/kg, 1.85-5.32 mg/kg, 1.23-2.63 mg/kg. At the end of the study, it is thought that oat husks are rich in inorganic matter and can be used in various food applications.
