Dr. Adel Yousif research is primarily concerned with the study of the effects of storage time / conditions on the functional and nutritional quality of pulse grain proteins, carbohydrates and polyphenols. Improper storage of pulse grains may affect nutrient content and impact on the health of the consumer, especially in third world countries where pulse grain is a major part of the daily diet and where appropriate storage facilities are lacking. Studies of the objective quality of stored pulse grain is an important step towards establishing quality standards for pulse grain storage stability, as well as evaluate the impact of the changes in protein, carbohydrate and polyphenol chemistry on markers of human health.
