Comprehensive New Barley Book Closes Gaps in Knowledge
for Food and Crop Scientists

St. Paul, Minn. (February 2014)--Scientists are finding ever more complex connections between the genetic and molecular properties of grains, their physiology, and the impact of processing on human nutrition and product attributes.

This cross-disciplinary research brings together food scientists, crop scientists and nutrition professionals more than ever. There is a strong need for a comprehensive reference allowing breeders, agronomists, processors, food scientists, and nutritionists to see not only the latest research from their own disciplines, but related ones as well.

Enter Barley: Chemistry and Technology, Second Edition, the latest book in AACC International’s highly regarded monograph series covering various grains, including wheat, corn, rice, and many other grain crops.

This new reference covers the massive increase in barley knowledge and is an important resource for anyone who must understand the development, structure, composition, and end use properties of the barley grain for cultivation, trade, and utilization. Breeders, agronomists, food scientists, grain industry professionals, and nutritionists will particularly find it useful.

This completely revised and updated book covers…

    • Barley’s latest applications in milling, breeding, and production for food, feed, malting, brewing, distilling, and biofuels.
    • Completely updated knowledge of barley’s many components, from the genetic and molecular level to its many constituents, such as proteins, carbohydrates, arabinoxylans, minerals, lipids, terpenoids, phenolics, and vitamins—and bioactive effects.
    • Updated chapters on barley’s plant and grain development from both the physiological and genetic perspectives.
    • The latest information on barley’s health benefits.
Barley: Chemistry and Technology, Second Edition’s editors, Peter R. Shewry and Steven E. Ullrich, bring together a wide range of international barley authorities to create this truly unique, encyclopedic reference. Users of this and other books in the popular AACCI monograph series will find Barley: Chemistry and Technology, Second Edition a worthy addition to their collections.
