This book is based on the Third International Wheat Quality Conference (IWQCIII) held late May 2005. It focuses on the unique structure and functionality of wheat, as well as its unique applications. The most important and current issues on the topic are discussed making it a valuable resource for those involved in all segments of the wheat industry including product quality, genetics, production, storage, marketing and utilization.

The book includes full length papers of all speaker presentations, beginning with introductions that give an overview of each paper. The topics covered include: the uniqueness of wheat, biotechnology, new challenges in carbohydrates, the structure and functionality of wheat proteins, large and small deformation rheological testing, rapid prediction of wheat quality, a global perspective of quality standards and marketing, and the future of wheat. Abstracts of all 66 poster presentations and additional information about the Conference are also included. A final summary of the conference and all of the topics discussed is provided by R. Carl Hoseney, a recognized leader in the field.

The organizers of the IWQCIII saw this conference and this resulting publication as a vehicle for senior members of the cereal science community, moving towards retirement, to pass the baton to the new generation of cereal scientists. Many of the Organizing and Scientific Committee members involved in the conference and book have been involved in cereal chemistry, science, and technology for over 25 years.
