Food Processing

SYNOPSIS

The Food Processing Research Program is focused on adding value to local food commodities. These include cereals and legumes, fruits and vegetables, roots and tubers, fish and other seafoods, and their byproducts. Value adding to the food commodities can be achieved by enhancement of their nutritional content, extension of their shelf-life, and increasing their market accessability. Extraction and separation methods are also employed to obtain higher value product or food ingredients from these commodities. The program is committed to helping the processor with limited access to capital who must meet food processing and quality standards, and cost competitiveness to gain and increase access to local and international markets. Problem solving research under this program is carried out by multidisciplinary teams involving food technologists, chemists, biochemists, microbiologists and engineers
