Cereal Technology Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Pseudecereals and Less Common Cereals
Grain Properties and Utilization Potential
edited by P. Belton
and J. Taylor

Pseudecereals and Less Common Cereals, written by leading grain scientists from Europe and Africa, 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.
