The classes are currently available for wheat classification by zone.

The following classes are classified for all zones:

Australian Prime Hard (APH)
Australian Hard (AH)
Australian Premium White (APW)
Australian Standard White (ASW)
Australian White Wheat (AWW)
Australian Premium Durum (ADR)
Australian Soft (ASFT)
Australian Noodle Wheat (ANW)
Australian Innovative Wheat (AIW)
Australian Feed (FEED)
Australian Premium Noodle (APWN) is a supplementary class requiring a
Hard Class of APW or higher before APWN is awarded.  

These classes are split into three key categories:
Premium Hard Wheats, General-Purpose Wheats and Specialty Wheats.

Premium Hard Wheats

Australian Prime Hard (APH)

A high protein milling wheat, comprising selected white, hard-grained wheat varieties. APH is ideally suited for high volume European breads, yellow alkaline noodles, fresh ramen noodles, dry noodles and wonton skins.

APH was traditionally segregated in northern NSW and QLD and was expanded to southern NSW in the late 1990s. In 2018, after five years of research and consultation with growers, bulk handlers, traders and breeders, all zone restrictions on the classification of

APH were removed, opening the possibility for Victorian, South Australian, and Western Australian farmers to grow and deliver APH. It is now a national class. It is now a national class, although as of 2021 APH wheat has been delivered only in NSW and Qld.

Australian Hard (AH)

High and mid protein selected white-grained wheats, AH is ideal for European pan and hearth breads, Middle Eastern style flat breads, yellow alkaline noodles, dry white salted noodles and steamed products.

Australian White Premium (APW)

Mid protein hard white wheats, APW is ideal for the production of a variety of noodle types, including Hokkien, instant and fresh noodles, and Middle Eastern and sub-continental flat breads and Chinese steamed bread. APW wheat is also widely used as blending wheat in a range of baking processes internationally and is the mainstay of the domestic baking industry.

General-purpose Wheats

Australian Standard White (ASW)

ASW is a highly versatile medium to low-protein white wheat representing excellent value for straight milling or blending purposes. This multi-purpose wheat is used in the production of a wide range of products including Middle Eastern, sub-continental flat breads, European-style breads and rolls and Chinese steamed bread.

Australian White Wheat (AWW)

Australian White Wheat is a new milling wheat class introduced in 2021 with white seed coat, good extraction and flour colour and sound falling number.  It represents excellent value as a general purpose or blending wheat for a range of milling and general purpose uses such as retail and instant noodle. AWW has no specific protein.

Specialty Wheats

Australian Premium Durum (ADR)

ADR is ideal for a wide range of wet and dry pasta products with excellent colour and shelf life and is also used in the production of North African and Middle Eastern products such as couscous, hearth and flat breads.

Australian Soft (ASFT)

ASFT produced on the east coast is principally used domestically for biscuit making and cake production where the traditional quality requirements are low protein content, low water absorption, low dough strength and over-extensibility for the protein content. ASFT produced on the west coast however, is used primarily in export markets for a range of Asian steamed products. For these products the domestic biscuit specifications are less relevant, with white, bright and speck-free flour being of much greater significance.

Australian Noodle (ANW)

APWN is mainly used in an export blend with ANW for a range of white salted and instant noodle types in specific Asian markets but its inherent processing characteristics are fully compatible with those of APW. APWN is currently grown only in WA.

Australian Innovative (AIW)

Australian Innovative Wheat is a unique new class introduced in 2021 to provide a class for new and unique varieties of wheat which exhibit unique end use properties which are not available in the main classes. It is anticipated that AIW varieties will be traded as single varieties and in a closed loop unlike mainstream varieties.

Wheat classification is managed by Grains Australian Limited.
