Cereal Rheology

The FAPC holds a Cereal Rheology short course to improve the understanding of the interface of cereal science, polymer science and rheology.

The objective of the one-and-a-half-day Cereal Rheology short course is to improve the understanding of the interface of cereal science, polymer science and rheology.  The first part of the short course will describe the need and opportunity of exploring such interface by starting with the basics of polymer networks and a critical review of several hypotheses that have been proposed for gluten and glutenin structures. The principles of rheology will be presented followed by applications of rheology to complex cereal systems including white and whole flours as well as ingredients. Relationships between flour quality, dough, gluten and end use quality will be discussed.  The second part will include laboratory demonstrations.

We designed the short course to give a basic foundation in rheology to students, cereal quality laboratory personnel and breeders.  It will include lectures and laboratory demonstrations using wheat flour as a model (commercial flours) and will make suggestions for other cereal products.  The short course also had built-in time for wrap-up group discussion.  We expect rich and rewarding interactions and questions from the participants.
