About this book

Examines six such grains that have been important food crops in various parts of the world and have the potential for much greater and more widespread use. The chemistry, nutritional value, food processing technologies and potential applications of three true cereals: sorghum, spelt wheat and the major millet species, and three dicotyledonous pseudocereals: grain amaranth, buckwheat and quinoa are discussed.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The purpose of this book is to inform, stimulate interest, and promote knowledge-sharing about the structure, chemistry, nutritional value, processing technologies, and current and potential uses of a number of important but underutilised food grains. ! This book provides a useful starting point for researchers, extension agents, and commercial companies ! ." (Jim Ellls-Jones, Mountain Research and Development, Vol. 24 (3), August, 2004) "The main purpose of the editors together with a team of experienced co-authors is not only to inform, but also to stimulate interest in ! food grains. This special volume is warmly recommended to scientists and practitioners in the disciplines of food technology as a comprehensive updated collection of these important, but still underestimated pseudo- and less common cereals." (AFS -- Advances in Food Science, Vol. 25 (2), 2003) "In this book, the authors and contributors, leading grain scientists from Europe and Africa, examine in particular possible food-processing methods and technologies for certain grain crops ! with the potential for worldwide cultivation. ! This book provides valuable basic information and useful hints for the food industry and related technological research institutions." (G. Sauerbeck and J. M. Greef, Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science, Vol. 189 (3), 2003) "The book extensively covers up-to-date knowledge on six grain cereals ! . The authors illustrate the potential from such species ! . The strength of the book lies in its capacity to go well beyond a description of the species ! . Technological properties are also well treated, providing an excellent insight to geneticists or breeders that may have an interest in distilling specific targets for their activities. ! An excellent contribution to the knowledge on a few neglected crops with great potential to mankind." (Paolo Donini, Plant Genetic Resources, Vol. 1 (1), 2003)
