Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
Expert has extensive experience as a researcher, reference book editor, consultant, and teacher of starch polymer and granule structure and chemical modification. He is familiar with granule structure, behavior, properties, modification, and applications in a broad range of products (food, paper, and textiles) and processes. In particular, he has provided advice on corn and potato starches. Dextrins and glucose are produced from starch and, hence, fall in his area of expertise.

Expert has more then 30 years of experience teaching, writing, and researching aspects of the chemistry and uses of industrial gums. He has conducted research and consulted in the area of water-soluble cellulose ethers. Additionally, he has researched beta-glucans, water-soluble polysaccharides from cereal brans that have important physiological benefits.

He is an expert in structure-function relationships of polysaccharides and in gum and starch applications. He has extensive knowledge of water-soluble polysaccharides used as food ingredients, and he has consulted in the area of exudate gums. In the field of industrial gums, he has performed research and has given advice.

Expert has extensive experience with the development of carbohydrate ingredients, their functional properties, analysis of their functionality, and their applications in foods. He has worked with the analysis and modification of carbohydrate structures. His experience includes chemical and enzymic methods of modification of mono-, oligo-, and polysaccharides. His work relates to practical applications of carbohydrates in industries where they are used, including food, paper, petroleum, mining, and pharmaceuticals.

Starch polymer and starch granule structure and chemistry is his primary area of research. To the expert, the term biopolymer means polysaccharides, especially the starches and gums/hydrocolloids used industrially. His primarily focuses on modification of corn starch in his research.

Xylitol preparation is an area of study for expert. Expert has done monosaccharide chemistry, primarily for the purpose of making bioactive derivatives.
