While cereals remain the world's largest food yield - with more than 2.3 billion metric tons produced annually - consumer demands are on the rise for healthier cereal products with greater nutrition. Cereal Grains: Properties, Processing, and Nutritional Attributes provides a complete exploration of the scientific principles related to domestication, morphology, production, and storage of cereal grains. It also describes their physical and chemical characteristics and explains how these properties relate to industrial processing and nutritional value.

This single-authored textbook lays the foundation for subsequent chapters by first addressing the importance of cereals for mankind, the comparative chemical and physical grain properties of the various types of cereal grains, the morphology and grain anatomy of caryopses, and the physiology of fertilization, grain development, and germination. The book then covers grain storage, pest control, industrial dry milling, wet milling, and both dry and fresh masa industries. A discussion of processing, quality control, and the role of cereals in human and animal nutrition rounds out the book's complete coverage.

Each chapter includes a set of up-to-date references along with selected questions to bolster comprehension of the discussed concepts. The book also contains a glossary of 600 scientific and technical terms to aid in the understanding of words used throughout the text. Cereal Grains: Properties, Processing, and Nutritional Attributes was designed especially for students and lecturers, but it is also helpful as a guide for scientists, food product developers, and nutritionists working to stay ahead of the curve.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The specific attraction of this volume...is its comprehensive and outstanding collection of the current information about the physicochemical and nutritional properties for the major cereal grains-wheat, rice, maize, oats, barley, sorghum/millets-and their products. Additionally, what was lacking in academia was the availability of a new and standard text book for readers interested in this area and the author and editor have done a good job of bringing that together as a common and unique package. The book deserves credit to be the first of its kind in the market...This single-authored textbook comprises 18 chapters that take the reader through an exciting journey of postharvest management and the wide array of industrial processes used to manufacture foods in a stepwise, reader friendly style.
