Whole-Grain Foods in Health and Disease
edited by Len Marquart

Whole-Grain Foods in Health and Disease provides a broad-based foundation of knowledge about whole grains, including the latest information on health benefits and disease prevention resulting from consumption of whole grains as well as information on consumer knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors toward whole-grain foods.

It is the first book of its kind to provide a comprehensive review of current whole grain science and technology, regulatory/policy issues, dietary intake, consumer interest and health promotion.

This reference includes the most recent information on whole grain constituents, including:

  • dietary fiber
  • resistant starch
  • oligosaccharides
  • vitamins
  • trace minerals
  • phenolic compounds
  • phytate
  • phytoestrogens
  • plant stanols
  • sterols

Whole-Grain Foods in Health and Disease explores how these components may work synergistically to mediate cholesterol, insulin and glucose response, decrease blood pressure, function as antioxidants, bind carcinogens and decrease transit time through the colon, reducing the risk for heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.

Whole Grain Foods in Health and Disease outlines policy and regulatory recommendations that provide additional dietary guidance for consumption of whole grain. The book also addresses the role of industry in creating and promoting great tasting whole grain products.
