Starch and proteins are the main macromolecules in cereal grains. Other non-starch carbohydrates occur in cereal grains in low amounts, particularly other pentosans, (1→3) (1→4) β-glucans, and low molecular weight carbohydrates. This chapter is concerned primarily with carbohydrates that (1) originate from cereal grains or flours and (2) exhibit total or partial solubility in water (at room temperature and/or heated). This definition includes starch, water-soluble pentosans, (1→3) (1→4… CONTINUE READING
