2009), and the milling process used, an evolution of which is illustrated in Fig. 1 (Historical background). At maturity, the wheat kernel consists of 85 % (w/w) carbohydrates (of which about 80 % is starch) found only in the starchy endosperm. Wheat also contains mono-, di- and oligosaccharides at a level of 7 %, mainly concentrated in the aleurone layer. Fructans are also presents in the starchy endosperm and embryonic axis, while 12 % of the wheat kernel consists of cell wall polysaccharides, which are found in all kernel tissues (Henry and Saini, 1989; Knudsen, 1997; Bruce and Matthew, 2009).

Large (A-type) and small (B-type) starch granules; magnification = 40x. size and conformation. In wheat and other higher plants, starch is formed in amyloplasts, each of which contains one starch granule. Wheat has two types and sizes of starch granules. The large lenticular (lens-shaped) granules are 25–40 μm in the long dimension; the small, spherical granules are 5–10 μm in diameter.

On the basis of X-ray diffraction experiments, starch granules are said to have a semi-crystalline character, which indicates a high degree of orientation of the glucan molecules. About 70 % of the mass of a starch granule is regarded as amorphous and ca 30 % as crystalline. The amorphous regions © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2013 Wheat and other Triticum grains 13 contain the main amounts of amylose, but also a considerable part of the amylopectin.
