Description

Edited and authored by an international team of respected researchers, this book provides a summary of current research findings related to phytochemical compositions and properties of cereal and pulse crops. It will serve as a timely guide for scientists working in food ingredients, food product research and development, functional foods and nutraceuticals, crop breeding and genetics, post-harvest treatment and processing of cereal grains and pulses, and human nutrition to effect value-added food innovation for health promotion and disease risk reduction.
