This book focuses on the unique structure and functionality of wheat, as well as its unique applications. The most important and current issues on the topic are discussed making it a valuable resource for those involved in all segments of the wheat industry including product quality, genetics, production, storage, marketing and utilization.

The topics covered include: the uniqueness of wheat, biotechnology, new challenges in carbohydrates, the structure and functionality of wheat proteins, large and small deformation rheological testing, rapid prediction of wheat quality, a global perspective of quality standards and marketing, and the future of wheat. 

The book is based on the research presented at the third International Wheat Quality Conference. The organizers of the IWQCIII, saw this conference and this resulting publication as a vehicle for senior researchers in the cereal science community to pass the baton to the new generation of cereal scientists. Many of the Organizing and Scientific Committee members involved in the conference and book have been involved in cereal chemistry, science, and technology for over 25 years. A final summary of the conference and all of the topics discussed is provided by R. Carl Hoseney, a recognized leader in the field.
