Understanding the structural, compositional and physicochemical properties of the wheat used in bread, biscuits, pasta and other consumer products is important. This book brings together international experts to provide an overview of the progress made to date and also to give an insight into the new approaches that can be used to solve outstanding problems. It covers progress in areas including: what grain structure; structural features of the gluten proteins; structual-functionality relationships of wheat protein; lipid-binding proteins; rheology of dough systems; and the importance of non-starch polysaccharides.
