A thorougly revised edition that encompasses new material including sections dealing with extrusion cooking and the use of cereals for animal feed. The section on industrial uses for cereals has been expanded considerably.
Cereals of the world: crops. Cereals of the world: grain structure. Chemical composition of cereals. Wheats of the world. Wheat: the farm crop. Wheat at the mill: wheat cleaning and conditioning. Wheat at the mill: flour-milling. Flour. Nutritional attributes of flour and bread. Bread-baking technology. Breaklast cerals and other processed products. Barley. Oats. Rey and triticale. Rice. Maize. Sorghum and the millets.
This is a completely revised and updated edition of the comprehensive and widely used survey of cereal technology. The first section describes the botany, classification, structure, composition, nutritional importantance and uses of wheat, corn, oats, rye, sorghum, rice and barley, as well as six other grains. The book also details the latest methods of producing, cleaning, and storing these grains. The second section of the book offers current information on the technological and engineering principles of feed milling, flour milling, baking, malting, brewing, manufacturing breakfast cereals, snack food production, wet milling (starch and oil production from grains), rice processing, and other upgrading procedures applied to cereal grains. This section also explains the value and utilization of by-products and examines many rarely discussed processing methods. In addition, the book provides reviews of current knowledge on the dietary importance of cereal proteins, lipids, fibre, vitamins, minerals, and anti-nutrient factors, as well as the effects of processing methods on these materials.
This well-established textbook provides students of food science with an authoritative and comprehensive study of cereal technology. Kent compares the merits and limitations of individual cereals as sources of food products as well as looking at the effects of processing treatments on the nutritive value of the products. The fourth edition of this classic book has been thoroughly updated with new sections including extrusion cooking and the use of cereals for animal feed.
Cereal grains and their fractions contain many health-protecting compounds such as phytochemicals, vitamins and indigestible carbohydrates, but the texture and taste of functional cereal products can be less than ideal. This important collection reviews technologies for producing a wide range of cereal products with different health-promoting properties and more acceptable sensory quality. The first part of the book discusses the health effects of cereals, with chapters on topics such as whole grain foods, cereal micronutrients and resistant starch. Consumer perception of health-promoting cereal products and regulatory and labelling issues are also described. The second part focuses on techn...

Provides readers with a leader in cereal science literature Includes new sections on extrusion cooking and the use of cereals for animal feed, along with information on statistics, new products, impact of climate changes and genetics, new economic trends, new nutrition regulations and new technologies Useful for students, researchers and industrial practitioners alike
The Handbook of Postharvest Technology presents methods in the manufacture and supply of grains, fruits, vegetables, and spices. It details the physiology, structure, composition, and characteristics of grains and crops. The text covers postharvest technology through processing, handling, drying and milling to storage, packaging, and distribution. Additionally, it examines cooling and preservation techniques used to maintain the quality and the decrease spoilage and withering of agricultural products.
This thoroughly revised second edition addresses the full spectrum of cereal grain science, employing agronomic, chemical, and technological perspectives and providing new and expanded treatment of food enrichment techniques, nutritional standards, and product quality evaluation. Written by over 40 internationally respected authorities, the Handbook of Cereal Science and Technology, Second Edition discusses recent developments in the chemical composition and functionality of cereal components such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids; highlights newly developed special ingredients and microbiological operations in processed foods; and investigates the most up-to-date production, processing, and uses of triticale, wild rice, and other grains. The book also addresses the latest standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, international organizations, and industry lobby groups; illustrates how new breeds of cereal grains are developed and sustained; explains new processing techniques for producing baked goods, pasta, breakfast cereals, and snack foods; and evaluates up-to-the-minute methods of fortifying foods with folic acid and other supplements.
Covers a range of topics from agro-botany to cereals processing. Provides an international perspective on food science and agriculture. Contents include: Cereal crops (botany, chemistry, classification); Storage and pre-processing; Dry milling; Flour quality; Baking; Malting, brewing and distilling; Pasta and whole grain foods; Breakfast cereals and other extrusion products; Wet milling; Small-scale products; Nutrition; Feed and industrial uses.
