Biotechnology in Nutritional Improvement of Wheat

  • Satinder Bajaj
Part of the Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry book series (AGRICULTURE, volume 13)


Wheat provides energy and protein for more people than any other single food (Anonymous 1985). Since the form in which wheat is consumed varies, the organoleptic and physical qualities desired from wheat need to alter accordingly. The bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) accounts for 80% of the wheat consumption in the world, and macroni wheat (T. durum) is consumed as noodles and pastes in most of the mediterranean regions.
