Crop Agricultural Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Wheat Chemistry and Utilization
by Hugh J. Cornell


  • Comprehensive guide and reference to wheat chemistry including wheat components and their uses
  • Review of current milling methods
  • Examination of wheat starches and syrups, and their commercial uses
  • Up-to-date information on nutritional aspects

Wheat Chemistry and Utilization meets the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date review of wheat chemistry, processing and uses. It provides the reader with extensive new information on wheat components that will be useful in better commercial utilization of wheat and the formulation of new and upgraded wheat-based food products.

The book is a one-volume information resource for all those involved in the research, development, formulation, and evaluation of wheat-based food products.
