Academic Press  2011  

Hardcover  542 pp  ISBN 9780123808868      £125.00
Examines those flour and bread related agents that affect metabolism and other health-related conditions. Explores the impact of compositional differences between flours, including differences based on country of origin and processing technique. Includes methods for analysis of flours and bread-related compounds in other foods.
