The compounds making up the dry weight of seeds play a major role in determining the nutritional quality and ultimately the uses and economic value of the seed. The carbohydrate fraction can be divided into starch, fibre and soluble carbohydrates.The result of a major collaborative programme across Europe, this book covers the chemistry, nutritional value, physiology, processing and breeding/biotechnology of carbohydrates in grain legume seeds. There is currently no book available which covers the strategies for improving carbohydrates in grain legumes (peas, beans etc.) which takes into account both nutritional and agricultural requirements. This book fills that gap. Extensive section covering the topical subject of genetic manipulation techniquesInformation within the book is useful on a world wide scale

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hedley (applied genetics, John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK) overviews the significant role that domesticated grain legumes have played in the social evolution of humankind, global legume production and consumption. Eight contributions stemming from an undated European Union-funded project entitled
'Carbohydrate biotechnology network for grain legumes' elucidate carbohydrate chemistry, grain legumes in human and animal nutrition, processing, seed physiology and biochemistry, biotechnology, breeding and agronomy, and strategies for enhancing grain legume carbohydrates and their image as 'poor
man's meat' in order to counteract shrinking demand. Includes 73 pages of references."--SciTech Book News
