Wheat Flour Milling, 2nd Edition brings together essential information about innovative approaches to the practice of wheat flour milling. Like the popular first edition, it includes in-depth coverage of current methods, technology, procedures, and equipment used in wheat flour milling, presenting specific ways to streamline mill operations and maximize flour quality while offering a general overview of industry practices.

Explaining all machinery and phases of the milling process, including storing and blending, cleaning and conditioning, grinding, sieving, and purifying, this extensive resource provides answers to all your technical questions. Tables of specific mill engineering data provide application for mill design, while chemistry and analytical information and improved laboratory techniques allow for greater accuracy in mill operation. Explanations on the theory of the process provide knowledge useful to all involved in milling or the end product.

The second edition is thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the changes that have occurred since the first edition was published and to provide more detailed information. For example, durum wheat and soft wheat have separate chapters for a more detailed focus on specific characteristics. In addition, new topics such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and Mill Management are covered. The glossary has also been expanded for easy access and understanding of milling terms. Practical conversion factors, the detailed index, and quick web references to all subjects related to wheat flour milling make finding the information you need quick and easy.

Millers, bakers, product manufacturers, grain scientists, quality assurance professionals, government agencies, wheat growers, wheat buyers, mill designers, educators, and students are sure to find this a useful, in-depth resource.

"This second addition, with its substantial additional material, is an authoritative work which, I believe, will prove an invaluable source of reference for students and all those with interest in milling and its technology...they have provided a good contribution to the search for a modern textbook, which now joins the classics in the millers' library. For the UK they have provided a resource and hopefully, given added stimulus."
