A question facing all food scientists in their pursuit of producing quality cereal products is: "What is quality?" With Interactions: the Keys to Cereal Quality, food technologists will gain with a more informed perspective of cereal science in relation to quality. By examining the question of quality in cereal science, they will benefit from an enhanced understanding of cereal chemistry. These insights will improve cereal chemistry applications.
The Role of Interactions
This book combines a general overview with a series of in-depth chapters on the role of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and their interactions. The introductory chapter is an overview of the role of interactions in the conversion of wheat into bread. Interactions related to final product quality of wheat —flour, dough, baked product— are thoroughly followed through their processing changes to the final product.
