About this Book
Whole Grains and Health presents a science-based discussion of whole grains and their expanding role in health and disease. An international collection of authors presents current perspectives on grains, the many opportunities for further research into whole grains and the remarkable growth potential for product development.
Coverage includes discussions on the health benefits of a diet rich in whole grains, the functional components of whole grains and the regulatory nuances of labeling grain products.
A unique feature is a section devoted to communicating with consumers. Barriers exist which affect consumer acceptance and use of whole-grain foods. Whole Grains and Health addresses those concerns and offers strategies for furthering research, product development and educational outreach.
