Engineering Aspects of Cereal and Cereal Based Products Book Description :

Cereal food engineering has become increasingly important in the food industry over the years, as it plays a key role in developing new food products and improved manufacturing processes. Engineering Aspects of Cereal and Cereal-Based Products focuses on the recent growth in cereal technology and baked foods science, reviewing the latest updates in technological developments in agricultural cultivation and processing for cereal scientists, food engineers, and students. Cereals include a vast number of biochemical entities, very diverse in composition and properties, as well as technological abilities. The text discusses cereal production, which varies according to cultural practices, type of cereal, cultivar, and region. It also addresses transportation, storage, and cereal quality—important at every phase from harvest to production. Chapters cover technological operations such as wet and dry milling and extrusion, and they address particular processing operations that are subject to improvements, including bread and confectionary baking. The text also examines malting, rice processing, breakfast cereals, and pasta. In addition, it explores new trends in cereal-based products and the effects of processing on nutritional and functional properties of cereal products. This book discusses the basic elements of cereal technology, from production to transformation, including the most important processing operations in cereal technology, with emphasis on the engineering aspects.

Functional Ingredients from Algae for Foods and Nutraceuticals Book Description :

Algae have a long history of use as foods and for the production of food ingredients. There is also increasing interest in their exploitation as sources of bioactive compounds for use in functional foods and nutraceuticals. Functional ingredients from algae for foods and nutraceuticals reviews key topics in these areas, encompassing both macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae. After a chapter introducing the concept of algae as a source of biologically active ingredients for the formulation of functional foods and nutraceuticals, part one explores the structure and occurrence of the major algal components. Chapters discuss the chemical structures of algal polysaccharides, algal lipids, fatty acids and sterols, algal proteins, phlorotannins, and pigments and minor compounds. Part two highlights biological properties of algae and algal components and includes chapters on the antioxidant properties of algal components, anticancer agents derived from marine algae, anti-obesity and anti-diabetic activities of algae, and algae and cardiovascular health. Chapters in part three focus on the extraction of compounds and fractions from algae and cover conventional and alternative technologies for the production of algal polysaccharides. Further chapters discuss enzymatic extraction, subcritical water extraction and supercritical CO2 extraction of bioactives from algae, and ultrasonic- and microwave-assisted extraction and modification of algal components. Finally, chapters in part four explore applications of algae and algal components in foods, functional foods and nutraceuticals including the design of healthier foods and beverages containing whole algae, prebiotic properties of algae and algae-supplemented products, algal hydrocolloids for the production and delivery of probiotic bacteria, and cosmeceuticals from algae.

Advances in Cereal and Pseudocereal Researches for Functional Foods Book Description :

Wheat and related grasses such as barley, rye, amaranth and quinoa have always been important for foods in Europe, the Levant and the western part of Asia. The food products of these cereals and pseudo-cereals have been mostly produced from white flours, which are milled from whole grains using the conventional milling method. Although the texture and sensory qualities of the products made from the white flours have been improved, the nutritive values of these products have become lower because most of the nutritional compounds such as dietary fibre, resistant starch, vitamins, minerals and microconstituents in the bran and germ have been removed from the white flours. Therefore, the consumption of whole grains has been considered to have many physiological benefits related to "western diseases" such as coronary heart disease, colon cancer and diabetes. Recently, researchers tried to find a good method to prepare foodstuffs containing sufficient amounts of nutritional compounds, especially dietary fibre and minerals. In this book, recent advances in cereal and pseudo-cereal based food researches have been reviewed. New milling techniques have been applied to produce graded flours which contain large amounts of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals and could be applied for substitution with the conventionally milled flour in bread-making to produce functional food products with high safety, palatability and nutrition. In addition, germination of cereal and pseudo-cereal grains helps to improve the chemical compositions, nutritive values and acceptability characteristics of functional food products. All of this useful information can be seen in this book.

Nutraceutical and Functional Food Processing Technology Book Description :

For several years, the food industry has been interested inidentifying components in foods which have health benefits to beused in the development of functional food and nutraceuticalproducts. Examples of these ingredients include fibre,phytosterols, peptides, proteins, isoflavones, saponins, phyticacid, probiotics, prebiotics and functional enzymes. Although muchprogress has been made in the identification, extraction andcharacterisation of these ingredients, there remains a need forready and near-market platform technologies for processing theseingredients into marketable value-added functional food andnutraceutical products. This book looks at how these ingredientscan be effectively incorporated into food systems for market, andprovides practical guidelines on how challenges in specific foodsectors (such as health claims and marketing) can be addressedduring processing. Nutraceutical and Functional Food Processing Technologyis a comprehensive overview of current and emerging trends in theformulation and manufacture of nutraceutical and functional foodproducts.

Consumer Driven Cereal Innovation: Where Science Meets Industry includes a collection of papers from oral and poster presentations, along with all the abstracts from the first Spring Meeting organized by Cereals&Europe, the European section of AACC International. These proceedings discuss the major innovation challenges the cereal industry is facing to meet consumers’ demands and expectations. Consumers’ needs are perhaps best summarized as foods that are safe, healthy, and tasty. This book helps answer important questions regarding these essential needs. With respect to safety, the cereal industry can already boast of an excellent reputation and a long tradition of safeguarding cereals and their products. But how can one define “healthy ? How does one distinguish between reality and fiction? If the best ways to add health benefits to cereal products are to be determined, the consumer’s palate needs first to be pleased. What are the most cost-effective ways to manufacture grain-based products for safety, health, and palatability? This conference addressed these important questions and this book is the result of the research and insights of many of the brightest minds in grain science today.
