This Month at Cereals & Grains Association
Award winners
We will be honoring a number of Cereals & Grains Association members at Cereals & Grains 19 in Denver, November 3–5. Sunday's opening general session will feature two Fellows, the winners of the Alsberg-French Schoch Memorial Lectureship, the Thomas Burr Osborne Medal recipient, and the William F. Geddes Memorial winner. The Excellence in Teaching award, Edith A. Christensen award, and Young Scientist Research award will be presented during Monday's plenary session. Each recipient has made a significant contribution to the field of cereal grain science, and we are grateful for the work they have done for the industry. View recipient bios.
Science & Trends
A new correction function for falling number at non-sea-level conditions was developed by the AACC Approved Methods program in response to the 2017 study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service.
Simsek et al. found that wheat-breeding strategies did not seem to affect the composition of modern cultivars compared with historical wheat cultivars. Subscribing members, log in to Cereal Chemistry and read the article in the September/October issue.
This issue focuses on the role of grains in the global food system, along with their environmental impact and use in meat analogues and meat products.
This past month, the association was rebranded with a new logo, new colors, and the completion of our name change to Cereals & Grains Association. We are excited to move forward with a new focus on serving all of our member stakeholders while continuing to foster food evolution in the cereal and grain science community.
