Cassie Anderson and Bethany Stebbins placed third in Student Association Product Development Competition, Ramnarain Ramakrishna won the Best Student Research Award for Grain Nutrition Science and Maneka Malalgoda won the Walter Bushuk Graduate Research Award in Cereal Protein Chemistry.
The purpose of the Product Development Competition is for students to develop and present innovative food products with at least one major cereal or legume. Anderson and Stebbins’ project was “Worry-Free Brownies.”
Ramakrishna’s poster and oral presentations were “Improving Phenolic Bioactive-Linked Anti-Hyperglycemic Functions of Dark Germinated Barley Sprouts (Hordeum vulgare L.) Using Seed-Driven Elicitation Strategy.”
