About this title


Traditional milling is a time-consuming and laborious task for rural women and there is a great need to mechanise this operation. However, the traditional milling practices have many nutritious advantages for children and women which are not associated with the new milling techniques and instead of being an improvement there are great risk that "improved milling" can be a threat to vulnerable groups. Should the milling take place at homestead and village level, or be centralized to larger sophisticated units? The former level can normally produce a coarse but nutritious product while the latter will result in a nice flour which often lacks essential nutrients need by people living on cereal dominated diets. Which milling technique is the most appropriate in relation to technical, economical, social, nutritional and health aspects? The questions are many and "Small-scale Milling" is a comprehensive and practical guide to improved food processing in both rural and poor urban areas, bring together the authors' many years of practical experience of post-production activities in cereals. It has been written because of lack of practical guidelines on how to design and manage viable milling programmes. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in milling in development countries, and the target reader is the extension agent promoting improved small-scale milling techniques. The book can be used both as a manual and course material for training a number of levels and covers: technical aspects of milling, economic aspects of milling, social aspects of milling, nutritional/health aspects of milling. The authors of this book are applications specialists with AGRISYSTEMS and Natural Resources Institute.
