This book documents the discovery, genetics, breeding, chemistry, nutrition, milling, and processing of a new, superior quality maize. First discovered in 1963 and improved by breeders in the early 1980's, Quality Protein Maize brought greatly improved nutritional value and cost savings for everything from infant formula to corn chips and animal feed. The impact of this breakthrough was felt throughout the food industry and in the developing world.

As the first complete book on this subject, Quality Protein Maize led the way for Cereal Chemists, Nutritionists, Agricultural Chemists, Product Development Specialists, Agronomists, Dry and Wet Millers and Feed and Food Producers with the information needed to take advantage of the substantial opportunities from its development.
