The quality of cereal products is dependent to a large extent on the suitability of the cereal grains processed. Therefore it is essential that cereals producers and handlers understand grain quality requirements for different end uses. Grain suppliers and users must also be able to rapidly and accurately assess grain end-use quality and use this information to direct their grain quality management activities. This book provides a convenient and comprehensive overview of academic research and industry best practice in these areas. Chapters review quality aspects of different cereals and also specific aspects of grain quality analysis and management.
Key Features: reviews cereal grain morphology and composition and the diversity of the different uses of cereal grains; examines the use of analytical methods at different stages of the value-addition chain; reviews the factors affecting grain quality such as breeding, storage and grain processing, as well as possible future developments.
