This is a single-volume source of information on the world's oilseeds including major, minor, unexploited and non-edible oilseeds. The book discusses composition, processing technologies and utilization, including current developments, in the processing of oilseeds into oil, protein products and other by-products. The authors present tabular data on nutritional composition and oil characteristics and discuss technologies for removing anti-nutritional and toxic compounds. Oil extraction processes are discussed, and novel uses of major crops are presented. This book should be of interest to researchers in oilseed production, research and development personnel, food scientists, plant breeders, product development personnel and government agency personnel involved in the production, transportation, distrubtion and processing of oilseeds.
