Pulses and Pulse Ingredients: Processing, Technology and Product Development is a complete and comprehensive overview of pulses with coverage from the raw ingredient to developed products.

Divided into two main sections the book opens with coverage of the processing of pulses. It looks in detail at ingredient processing with a focus on milling and fractionation. This section also has chapters covering the composition of pulse ingredients as well as chapters on pulse and pulse ingredient testing and has an overview of end use quality.

The second section looks in detail at the raw ingredients which can be derived from pulses, with separate chapters covering whole pulses, pulse flours, starches, proteins and fibers. Within each of these chapters there is extensive coverage of specific products which can be made from these raw materials, including soups, baked products, noodles and pastas, snack foods and pet foods, with discussion points on the technologies use as well as challenges and resolutions in each section.

Pulses are one of the hottest topics in cereal and grain science. This is written by industrial researchers working at the cutting edge of pulses and pulse ingredients, and will therefore be able to bring practical applied knowledge of this rapidly expanding field. The book is essential reading for cereal and grain science academics and postgraduate students interested in the subject of pulse processing as well as industrial product developers in cereal and grain companies.
