Synopsis: Corn (maize) wet milling, in some form, has been practised commercially for about 150 years. During this period there have been spectacular increases in process efficiency, in the amount of corn being handled, and in the size of individual wet milling plants. In recent years, expansion of the industry has been the result of the development and widespread application of specialized products such as modified starches and fructose syrups. At present, expansion is directed towards the production of fuel alcohol, and smaller-scale specialties such as fermentation products and cyclodextrins. The various processes associated with the wet milling of corn, from the practical standpoint of those involved in designing, operating and improving such plants are covered in this book. The relevant characteristics of corn, the operations involved in the milling process, the production of the usual range of starches, syrups and by-products and the operation of some ancillary services are described. A chapter on fuel alcohol is also included. The subject matter is presented from a practical rather than an academic viewpoint, and is intended to assist those whose job it is to design workable processes, and those who must make the processes work.

Review: ...an excellent source of information, for education as well as for assistance to all those who are interested in the field of starch. -- Starch/Starke

...has concentrated on aspects not generally covered by any other single volume. The result is a very useful work. -- International Sugar Journal
