A supercontinuum laser was used to perform the first transmission measurements on intact seeds with long wavelength near-infrared spectroscopy. A total of 105 barley seeds from five different barley genotypes (Bomi, lys5.f, lys5.g, lys16 and lys95) were measured from 2275 to 2375 nm. The mixed-linkage (1 -> 3,1 -> 4)-beta-D-glucan (BG) and protein content was measured with wet chemical analysis for each single seed. A partial least squares model correlated the BG % (w/w) with the spectral measurements with a R-CV(2) and R-PRED(2) of 0.83 and 0.90, respectively. The predictive model for BG could be improved by averaging spectra from the same seed and by replacing the individual seed BG content with the average BG of each barley genotype.
