Corn Milling by Martin Watts

Book Description

Corn milling - the reduction of hard cereal grains to form a usable foodstuff - is one of the oldest crafts. While windmills and watermills are given deserved notice, the milling process and the modern development of the industry are usually taken for granted. The history of milling is exceptional in the necessity of the process and its continuing importance, and its unique buildings and machines, which had a marked effect on contemporary technology. With increased interest in wholesome foods, energy conservation and the preservation of technological history, this book provides a window into the milling industry, covering both traditional and modern mills and presenting a working picture of the industry.
