Seeds are a pathway for species survival. They are a fundamental unit for plants spreading, performing a vital biological role. They have been consumed as food for thousands of years, and contain the genetic potential of agricultural species; therefore, they are continually improved and selected along time. This book reviews the biochemistry, functional properties and health benefits of seed proteins. (Imprint: Novinka)
