Description

Starchy Crops Morphology, Extraction, Properties and Applications is the first volume of the "Underground Starchy Crops of South American Origin" book series. Organized in five volumes, this series brings information on the applied level of producing and using starch from a range of plants grown in tropical and subtropical areas that have South American origin. This book presents the characteristics and properties of starches for raw materials grown in tropical climates. It allows comparing starches from 3 types of storage organs, roots, tubers and rhizomes, with different morphological structures and physiology. It contains the methodologies of extraction and analysis, describing the commercial process with the commercial equipment’s and its by-products and wastes. It also includes topics on fraud detection, nutritional aspects, and starch structure. Edited by a team of experts with solid background on starch extraction research, the books are aimed at all those involved in research and development as well as quality control and legislation in the field of starch.

About the Editors

Marney Pascoli Cereda

Marney Pascoli Cereda, Ph.D. has graduated in Agronomic Engineering at University of São Paulo, Brazil. She idealized and was the first Director of a Research Centre specialized in tropical starches. For her activities in research, she received in 2000 the Medal of Merit from the São Paulo Government. She also realized post-doctoral internships in Spain, France and England and technical visits in China, Thailand, Japan, India and in most Central and South American countries. Her researches focus mainly in food technology and development. In food technology she works mainly with food security, food safety and the use of agroindustry’s wastes. In rural agroindustry’s, she works in the development of processes in social technology and valorization of family farming products production by innovative technologies. She developed 3 patents and other 6 are in analysis process. From 2018 she remains an independent researcher and coordinates the Agro: Research, Processes and Products Laboratories.
