Wheat - An Exceptional Crop: Botanical Features, Chemistry, Utilization, Nutritional and Health Aspects presents the exceptional position of wheat among food crops. The book demonstrates the benefits and drawbacks of wheat from a wheat science, nutrition and technology perspective. Organized into 13 chapters, chapters 1 - 3 present a basic overview of wheat; chapters 4 - 6 explore the overall benefits of wheat for the general population, and chapters 7 - 13 assess wheat-related disorders that affect a small portion of the population.

Wheat - An Exceptional Crop: Botanical Features, Chemistry, Utilization, Nutritional and Health Aspects is an exceptional reference for those working in and researching the fields of agronomy, food chemistry, food technology, nutrition, allergology and gastroenterology.

- Explores the botanical features of wheat, chemical composition of wheat grains, and the cultivation and milling of wheat- Highlights wheat-based food and feed, wheat-based raw materials, and the nutritional value of wheat- Discusses principles of wheat hypersensitivities and various wheat-related disorders
