Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) calibrations were developed for protein, fat, TDF, and β-glucan content estimations in ground oat groats. Calibrations were based on accepted reference procedures (AOAC, AACC Methods). Coefficient of determination (R2) for the calibration equations computed for protein, fat, TDF, and β-glucan were 0.95, 0.99, 0.86, and 0.65, respectively. Standard errors of calibration (SEC) were 0.40, 0.10, 0.52, and 0.27 for protein, fat, TDF, and β-glucan, respectively. Correlation coefficients (r) for NIRS versus reference procedure results for the calibration samples were 0.98, 0.99, 0.94, and 0.90 for protein, fat, TDF, and β-glucan, respectively. NIRS calibrations for protein, fat, and β-glucan were effective for rapid screening of large numbers of oats samples. The TDF calibration, however, achieved poor predictions of validation samples.
