Cereals for Food and Beverages Recent Progress in Cereal Chemistry and Technology covers the proceedings of an international conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark on August 13-17, 1979. It summarizes the chemistry and technology of the major cereals related to their usage in food and beverages. This book is organized into 28 chapters that focus on various cereals, including wheat, maize, barley, oats, rye, sorghum, rice, and millet. It briefly discusses a range of fluorescence methods for visualizing major grain reserves, and then outlines the advantages of the methods over conventional microscopy. Considerable chapters are devoted to the chemistry of wheat as related to water activity, particle analysis, dietary fiber, proteins, and properties in breadmaking. A chapter also covers the milling technology of wheat for bread and soft wheat production. Discussions on maize science include a protein concentrate, starch, and protein chemistry. Chapters on maize technology cover the progress in sugar production by enzymes from starch, germ products in baked foods, and utilization in brewing. Subsequent chapters on barley studies include its morphology and physiology in malting; proanthrocyanidin-free barley in beer; and the basic science of hordein. Chemistry and technology of oats are covered in two chapters, followed by chapters on sorghum, rice, millet, soy sauce production, and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. This book will be a useful reference for students, scientists, technologists, and manufacturers who are involved in any facet of food and beverage production.
