Sprouted Grains: Nutritional Value, Production and Applications is a complete and comprehensive overview of sprouted grains, with coverage from grain to product. Sections includes discussions on the process of grain germination from both a genetic and physiological perspective, the nutrients and bioactive compounds present in spouted grains, and the equipment and technical innovation of use to manufacturers of sprouted grains and sprouted grain products. This book is essential reading for cereal science academics and postgraduate students interested in the subject of cereal processing, but is also ideal for industrial product developers in cereal companies.

Hao Feng is currently professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Professor Feng's research interests include high intensity ultrasound (power ultrasound) and its application in food processing and preservation, enhancing the safety and quality of fresh and fresh-cut produce, novel deconstruction methods for biofuel production from biomass, new extraction and separation techniques, dielectric heating and its application in food processing, and novel drying technologies. Prof. Feng is a member of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
Dr. Boris Nemzer - vice president of research and development - has been a vital member of the FutureCeuticals team since 2005, and is a professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Urbana, IL). He received his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry in 1986.
Dr. Nemzer is tirelessly engaged in his work, having authored and co-authored over 150 scientific publications in physical, analytical bio- and food chemistry. He has affiliations and memberships with different international scientific societies and associates such as the Phytochemical Society of North America (PSNA), International Association of Group Polyphenols (GP), Institute of Food Technology (IFT), Society for Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine (SFRBM), Oxygen Club of California (OCC), and the International Society of Antioxidant in Nutrition and Health (ISANH). He has been co-chair of the bio-active compounds committee at AACC International since 2008, elected a Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry, UK (2014), and is an Honored Professor at The University of Science and Technology in Beijing, China (2015). Dr. Nemzer's current research focuses on the phytochemical and nutritional composition of natural products and their extracts, phytochemicals interaction, their bioavailability, and effects on antioxidant activity and oxidative stress markers in humans.
