Sprouted Grains: Nutritional Value, Production and Applications is a complete and comprehensive overview of sprouted grains with coverage from grain to product.

Divided into four main sections, the book opens with coverage of the process of grain germination from both a genetic and physiological perspective. The next section looks in detail at nutrients and bioactive compounds present in spouted grains – a topic of huge importance given that products containing sprouted grains are often marketed as healthy options. The third section is focused on equipment and technical innovation of use to manufacturers of sprouted grains and sprouted grains products. A chapter in this section covers microbial safety of sprouted grains. The final section covers products which use sprouted grains.

Sprouted grains are one of the hottest topics in cereal and grain science. This edited volume brings together the world’s leading researchers on sprouted grains. This book is essential reading for cereal science academics and postgraduate students interested in the subject of cereal processing as well as industrial product developers in cereal companies.
