Advances in Food and Nutrition Research
Volume 41

edited by Mirta E. Sivak
and Jack Preiss


This reference book recognizes the integral relationship between the food and nutritional sciences and brings together outstanding and comprehensive reviews that highlight this relationship.

Advances in Food and Nutrition Research - Volume 41 presents the physiological and biochemical aspects of storage carbohydrates, or starch granules, in plants. This up-to-date and thorough resource carefully integrates fundamental knowledge with the most recent information on the starch granule. It discusses the chemistry of the starch granule and the biochemistry, molecular biology, plant physiology, and genetics of plant starch synthesis. The books also describes the implications of these studies for the seed, biotechnology, and modified starch industries.
