Covers the chemistry, nutritional value, physiology, processing and breeding/biotechnology of carbohydrates in grain legume seeds.
Chemistry; nutrition; plant physiology and agronomy; processing; biotechnology; breeding; strategies for improving grain legume carbohydrates. (Part contents).
"Hedley (applied genetics, John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK) overviews the significant role that domesticated grain legumes have played in the social evolution of humankind, global legume production and consumption. Eight contributions stemming from an undated European Union-funded project entitled 'Carbohydrate biotechnology network for grain legumes' elucidate carbohydrate chemistry, grain legumes in human and animal nutrition, processing, seed physiology and biochemistry, biotechnology, breeding and agronomy, and strategies for enhancing grain legume carbohydrates and their image as 'poor man's meat' in order to counteract shrinking demand. Includes 73 pages of references."--SciTech Book News
