Book cover for Carbohydrates in grain legume seeds. Improving nutritional quality and agronomic characteristics.

Description

This book is the result of a combined effort from scientists covering many disciplines interacting within a European Union-funded Copernicus project entitled 'Carbohydrate Biotechnology Network for Grain Legumes' (CABINET). The CABINET project linked 30 participants from 14 countries across Europe, including states of the former Soviet Union. The 8 chapters provide information on carbohydrate chem...

Carbohydrate chemistry.

Information on the carbohydrates is presented under the following headings: the carbohydrates, including soluble carbohydrates (monosaccharides and disaccharides, α-galactosides, and cyclitols), polysaccharides (starch and fibre fraction) and other carbohydrate components (lignin and saponins); and chemical analysis of the carbohydrates, including soluble carbohydrates (standards, extraction of soluble carbohydrates from seeds, high performance gas chromatography, HPLC, thin layer chromatography, capillary zone electrophoresis and other analytical methods), polysaccharides (starch and fibre fraction) and other carbohydrate components (pectin, lignin and saponins).
