Cereal grains are the oldest shelf-stable concentrated sources of calories, and the oilseeds and pulses are the original storage forms of vegetable food proteins. As the world's population obtains nearly 70 percent of its food protein and calorie needs from plant sources, this must be an important topic. In the less developed parts of the world the figure are even higher and considerable quantities of whole seeds are consumed in many forms.

The monograph presents reviews that have been prepared and summarized by speakers at a short course on Food Uses of Whole Oil and Protein Seeds, which was held in Hawaii in May 1986. The chapters demonstrate the scope of this text and their titles run: World production, availability and variety differences of soybeans; General uses of whole soybeans; Change and growth in soymilk industry; A modern soymilk plant; Aseptic packaging of soymilk; Production and uses of soybean tempeh; Production and uses of soybean sauces; Miso preparation and use (also hot and sweet pastes); Food uses of soybeans; World native uses of peanuts; Food uses of glandless cottonseed kernels; Preparation and uses of confectionery sunflower seeds; Processing and utilization of sesame seed; Uses of common dry fields beans; Uses of pulses in West Africa and North Africa; Preparation and uses of legumes and oilseeds in Africa; World uses of domestically produced dry field peas, lentils and chickpeas; Food uses of tropical nuts and palm fruits; Control of antinutritional and toxic factors in oilseeds and legumes; Nutrition progress in vegetable protein diet societies; and Vegetarianism in the United States of America.

From this list one can see that information on items like peanut butter products as well as on the various soybean products and sauces can be found. The authors of the chapters provide information in depth on many aspects of this whole subject area.
