Wheat Quality Elucidation: The Bushuk Legacy is based on The Bushuk Symposium honoring the work of world-renowned cereal chemist, Dr. Walter Bushuk. Dr. Bushuk is internationally recognized as an innovator in the cereal chemistry industry. Through his investigations of wheat protein composition and its interaction with other flour components, Dr. Bushuk has been integral in improving wheat quality. His research, along with his history of mentoring aspiring cereal chemists, is celebrated in this tribute symposium.

Topics include advances in the chemistry of baking quality, very small-scale testing methods, new developments in image analysis and in ultrasound testing of quality, dough rheology, variety identification, and genetic manipulation of wheat quality, as well as biographical material about and an interview with Dr. Bushuk. The book emphasizes the international nature of the wheat industry with contributions from Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Poland, Turkey, the U.K., and the U.S.A.

This essential source of information on wheat quality is valuable to cereal chemists involved in wheat production, handling, processing, milling, baking, marketing and retailing; cereal chemistry students and researchers; wheat growers interested in grain quality and market potential for grain; food processors; and wheat/plant breeders.

Author Index

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”
—Isaac Newton

"A generation of cereal chemists has benefited from ‘standing on the shoulders’ of a famous Canadian cereal chemist, Walter Bushuk. As a result, they have ‘seen further.’ You are also invited to ‘see further’ into the latest research in wheat quality, as told in this volume by the most prominent of Bushuk’s former research associates."
—Perry K. W. Ng
