Discover Grain Processing Techniques

Cereal grains are packed with nutrition and are an important part of a healthy diet. Processing techniques play a vital role in improving the nutritional value, shelf life, texture and appearance, and the functional properties of grain-based food ingredients. For our Grain Processing Techniques Food for Thought, we've collected resources that illustrating the value of these techniques in food production.

Take a look at this topic and our past Food for Thought topics.
