Wheat science has undergone countless new developments since the previous edition was published. Wheat: Chemistry and Technology, Fourth Edition ushers in a new era in our knowledge of this mainstay grain. This new edition is completely revised, providing the latest information on wheat grain development, structure, and composition including vital peer-reviewed information not readily available online. It contains a wealth of new information on the structure and functional properties of gluten (Ch. 6), micronutrients and phytochemicals in wheat grain (Ch. 7), and transgenic manipulation of wheat quality (Ch. 12). With the new developments in molecular biology, genomics, and other emerging technologies, this fully updated book is a treasure trove of the latest information for grain science professionals and food technologists alike. Chapters on the composition of wheat-proteins (Ch. 8), carbohydrates (Ch. 9) lipids (Ch. 10), and enzymes (Ch. 11.), have been completely revised and present new insight into the important building blocks of our knowledge of wheat chemistry and technology. The agronomical importance of the wheat crop and its affect on food industry commerce provide an enhanced understanding of one of the world’s largest food crop. Most chapters are entirely rewritten by new authors to focus on modern developments. This 480-page monograph includes a new large 8.5 x 11 two-column format with color throughout and an easy to read style. Wheat: Chemistry and Technology, Fourth Edition provides a comprehensive background on wheat science and makes the latest information available to grain science professionals at universities, institutes, and industry including milling and baking companies, and anywhere wheat ingredients are used. This book will also be a useful supplementary text for classes teaching cereal technology, cereal science, cereal chemistry, food science, food chemistry, milling, and nutritional properties of cereals. Cereal and food science graduate students will find Chapter 1 - “Wheat: A Unique Grain for the World particularly helpful because it provides a succinct summary of wheat chemistry.

Wheat flour is a key ingredient in many food creations, from baked goods to breakfast cereals to various pastas and noodles. And while it may seem like a simple ingredient to some, the quality, composition, milling, and other aspects of wheat flour will make a big difference in the final product—as well as its success (or failure) in the market. Wheat Flour, Second Edition breaks down this important ingredient from a range of perspectives important to the food industry, including wheat crops, milling, the composition of commercial flour, nutrition, wheat and flour testing, production issues, quality specifications, and products derived from hard, soft, and durum wheats. Like other books in AACCI's Ingredient Handbook series, Wheat Flour, Second Edition offers expert information currently unavailable in a single source and presents it in straightforward language. This book is among the fastest, easiest references for a variety of food industry professionals, including product developers, quality assurance staff, purchasing agents, production personnel, plant managers and supervisors, teachers and students, suppliers, technical sales representatives, engineers, microbiologists, food scientists, and nutritionists. Wheat Flour, Second Edition features clearly written text filled with many easy-to-use tables and illustrations. Concise troubleshooting guides help those dealing with product quality or production issues. And for quick reference, definitions of key terms appear in the margins of pages throughout the text and are compiled in the book’s extensive glossary. This new edition incorporates the latest technical information on wheat flour, representing the many recent changes in technology and research since the first edition was produced in 2001. Also new feature of this edition is that the book considers key nutritional questions that were not as important to the public when the first edition was produced, such as health conditions involving gluten and wheat allergies and the quest for products with less fat and salt. Coverage of specific product applications and problem resolution, as well as basics about wheat and milling, make Wheat Flour a must-have for food industry professionals. Everyone from new product developers to technical sales personnel will find answers to their questions about wheat flour in this one-stop, practical ingredient handbook With this book, you will be able to: Quickly orient yourself and colleagues to the latest research on wheat flour Swiftly troubleshoot costly issues related to flour quality and food production Develop a range of consistent, superior products that include wheat flour
