World Congress of Food Science and Technology

 

The IUFoST World Congress of Food Science and Technology, which brings together food scientists and technologists to foster the worldwide exchange of scientific knowledge and ideas, took place August 5-9, in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.

 

The INC sponsored the session “Nuts in a Global Setting” on August 8th. Chaired by Mr. Ezzedine Boutrif, Former Director of Nutrition and Consumer Protection at FAO, the INC-funded session consisted of six conferences: Mr. Boutrif reviewed food security priorities and international initiatives; Dr. Karen Lapsley, Director of Scientific Affairs for the Almond Board of California, gave a presentation on global dietary guidelines and nut health benefits; Prof. Richard Mattes, professor of Purdue University, USA, in the Department of Foods and Nutrition, presented multi-country appetite and dietary effects of consuming an energy dense snack.

 

In the second half of the session Ms. Julie Adams, Vice Chairman of the INC Scientific and Government Affairs Committee, reviewed global trends in nut production, trade and food safety, followed by Dr. Rainer Perren, from RPN Food Technology AG in Switzerland, who presented developments in roasting and thermal pasteurization of tree nuts. The session concluded with a presentation by Dr. Anna Resurreccion, Department of Food Science and Technology of University of Georgia (USA) on strategies for aflatoxin elimination in peanut products in under-industrialized nations in Asia and Africa.

Building her research program from the ground up, Resurreccion has become world-renowned in the field. She has, since,  published three  books widely used by the food industry and has written 130 refereed journal articles and more than 600 scientific and technical articles. She has led or co-led grant-funded projects of more than $12.5 million, and was the recipient of numerous major awards including the title of Distinguished Research Professor. .

 

Looking back over 23 years of food science research, Resurreccion says the projects that mean the most to her are those that have helped children and the impoverished. "The projects that have helped people who can’t help themselves are the ones that are dearest to my heart," she said.

 

These include:

Research that has placed Vitamin A-fortified peanut butter on store shelves, providing an affordable way to deliver Vitamin A in countries where over 35 percent of pre-school children are deficient, causing many to lose their eyesight.

 

A new process for peanuts that increases the amount of resveratrol, an antioxidant proven to protect against cancer, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's Disease. The peanuts Resurreccion modifies have up to 12.3 times as much resveratrol as red wine.

 

A sorting process for peanuts that reduces the level of aflatoxin, a potent carcinogen. Aflatoxin contamination is a food safety threat in countries such as Africa and South Asia. The sorting process eliminates aflatoxin from peanut products.

 

A new peanut beverage that contains 50 times the antioxidant capacity of blueberries. The new product has twice the antioxidant capacity of green tea.

 

Projects like these have immediate worldwide impact, she said, because they have direct health benefits and dramatically increase the value of peanuts. They're attracting new industries into Georgia, too, she said, because of the quantity and quality of the peanuts grow

Peanuts, a dietary outcast during the fat-phobic 1990s, have made a comeback, with consumption soaring to its highest level in nearly two decades and more doctors recommending the nuts as part of a heart-healthy diet."

 

Anna Resurreccion, a University of Georgia food scientist, has focused her research on the resveratrol found in peanuts. By subjecting the nuts to stress — slicing the kernels, or subjecting them to ultrasound — the resveratrol level greatly surpassed that found in red wine, she said.

 

Resveratrol is a bioactive compound found in peanuts, a polyphenolic antioxidant that is linked with chemo-prevention of some cancers, prevention of cardio-vascular disease, and is associated with delaying the onset of aging.

Resurreccion, Ph.D., CFS  International Food Security, Food Product-Process Development and Innovation, Food Business Development | Scoop.it

GP3MT activities and achievements were featured this week on September 7, in Washington D.C. I participated on a panel, after co-authoring a presentation on "Strategies for Fast-tracking Market Development of food products in Asia and Africa,"  presented by GP3MT's Dr. Manjeet Chinnan.  This was based  on an innovative approach I developed along with co-workers to speed up the development, formulation, processing and commercialization of food products in the Philippines and Thailand and scaled up in East and West Africa by GP3MT.

 

The model which involves public-private partnerships has resulted in product/processing technologies transferred and adopted by 10 companies in the Philippines, 5 Village-based enterprises in Thailand.  Three companies each in, Uganda and Ghana, have either launchced or are in the final stages of development of food products.

 

GP3MT is the Global peanut Product Processing and Marketing Team, based at the Unversity of Georgia.

EHJE'S PEANUT BUTTER Product Photos

Check out the photos of EHJE's peanut butter products.

 

These peanut products are manufactured by Jennilyn Antonio of the Philippines under the brand name EHJE's. Jennilyn started out as a micro-entrepreneur, selling a total of one Kilo of peanut paste a week to co-workers, to augment her salary at an assembly plant. I met her when she attended a course offered by my USAID Peanut -CRSP project and approached me, during course breaks, for feedback on a sample of peanut butter.  I have advised EHJE on peanut butter technologies since her start-up stages, producing one kilo of ground peanuts a week, to sell to co-workers to use in their kare-kare/peanut soup.

 

Her peanut butter goes through stringent processing stages to ensure safety and quality. USAID funding allows me to "incubate" industries from micro- to large-scale, to ensure safe and high-quality peanut products in the marketplace.

 

Look for these in stores in the Philippines.  Jennilyn distributes her products through the SM Supermarket chain and various Bakeshops located in the Philippines but will soon go international. Her products are safe and have high quality.   A true success story.

Irradiated Food

Irradiated Food | Anna V.A. Resurreccion, Ph.D., CFS  International Food Security, Food Product-Process Development and Innovation, Food Business Development | Scoop.it

Irradiated Food..." (Re-post)


SHOULD YOU WORRY?

Dozens of scientific organizations around the world have concluded that irradiation is safe. “There’s no scientific basis for concern,” says Anna Resurreccion, Ph.D., a professor of food science and technology at the University of Georgia, Griffin. Knocking electrons around in food does form unique radiolytic products, she says, but the low doses of irradiation needed to kill germs aren’t powerful enough to produce harmful levels of the compounds. As for taste, “There’s absolutely no difference,” says Resurreccion. “The only difference is that irradiated food is safer. Why are people dying from eating contaminated spinach when technology is available to reduce or eliminate the problem?”

irradiation is safe according to many say that this is a good method to kill germs off of food . and still this food going trough that process does not change its flavor what so ever.

brian fernandez's curator insight, March 7, 2014 11:26 AM

after reading the article about irrdaiated food i am scared to eat both foods that are and arent irradited. i am concerened on how techonology has even affected the food that we ingest everyday. before reading this article i had no clue that food was shot by guns that supposedly kill germs. i am personally against irradiated food because i do not know what the rays have and to know my food is being irradiated concerns me. i understand that some people have died from food that is contaiminated but i dont believe using technology to kill the germs is safe either. i believe that their is a safer way to kill germs on food and that whatever it is it should be done.
