Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
CEREAL FOOD; CEREAL SCIENCE; WHEAT FLOUR. Expert has devoted most of his career to studying how flour interacts to form baked food products. His research has involved chemical separation of the components of wheat flour and determination of their functional role in food. He has a strong understanding of the basic principles that govern cereal product performance. Although most of his work has been with wheat, Expert has also studied other cereal grains such as oats, corn, barley, and rice.

CEREAL PROCESSING. Expert is particularly knowledgeable of cereal grain processing, composition, and the chemistry of converting cereals into food and feed.

BREAD; DOUGH; DOUGH RHEOLOGY. In addition to teaching a course in flour and dough testing and several courses in cereal science and cereal chemistry, Expert has conducted advanced research into such areas as functional and molecular approaches to breadmaking, heritability estimates of protein content, phytic acid and its fate in breadmaking, and the effect of corn sweeteners on cookie quality. Recently, he has moved into rheology of doughs and batters and extrusion processing of cereals.

CORN. Expert has led research into the properties of corn and its milled products. He has studied the effect of particle size on the consistency of batters, the use of corn in snacks (including Mexican foods), and the expansion of popcorn and the factors causing popcorn to pop.

WHEAT GLUTEN. Expert works extensively with both the use of wheat gluten in baked products and pet food and with the properties of gluten. The work also includes the chemical composites of gluten and its rheological properties.
