The gluten proteins of wheat grain, which determine the processing properties of wheat flour, have been the subject of intensive study for many years. The structures, genetics and functional properties of this unique group of proteins are the focus of this book. Providing a unique snapshot of the most exciting current research in the area, this wide-ranging book encompasses topics such as biotechnology- analysis, purification and characterization- quality testing- and environmental impacts. Contributions come from academia, government laboratories and industry throughout the world, and will be welcomed by practitioners in a variety of fields including the food, biological and agricultural sciences.
