Whole-Grain Foods in Health and Disease provides a broad-based foundation of knowledge about whole grains, including the latest information on health benefits and disease prevention resulting from consumption of whole grains as well as information on consumer knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors toward whole-grain foods. It is the first book of its kind to provide a comprehensive review of current whole grain science and technology, regulatory/policy issues, dietary intake, consumer interest and health promotion.

This reference includes the most information on whole grain constituents, including dietary fiber, resistant starch, oligosaccharides, vitamins, trace minerals, phenolic compounds, phytate, phytoestrogens, plant stanols, and sterols. The book explores how these components may work synergistically to mediate cholesterol, insulin and glucose response, decrease blood pressure, function as antioxidants, bind carcinogens and decrease transit time through the colon, reducing the risk for heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.

Whole Grain Foods in Health and Disease outlines policy and regulatory recommendations that provide additional dietary guidance for consumption of whole grain. The book also addresses the role of industry in creating and promoting great tasting whole grain products.

Scientists, nutritionists, dietitians, diabetic educators, and professionals in the food industry will gain insight into the health promoting benefits of whole-grain foods. Food scientists and technologists will find this reference valuable for developing whole-grain products and enhancing the taste, quality, and health profile of whole-grain foods.
