The cereals program research focus at the University of Guelph spans the entire cereal grain market value chain with an emphasis on issues that are of economic importance to Ontario.
We approach research topics from a holistic standpoint, integrating expertise in plant science and genetics, agronomy, cereal science, sensory science, and nutrition as necessary to generate a more complete understanding of the technical issues facing the cereals industry.
In addition to formal research, we troubleshoot the various technical challenges of milling and processing operations. We also have pilot-scale bakery facilities and analytical equipment to conduct in-depth investigations.
