Cassie Anderson and Bethany Stebbins place third in Student Association Product Development Competition (PDC), 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 (see link to separate story).

The purpose of the PDC is for students to develop and present innovative food products with at least one major cereal or legume. The competition is organized by students and sponsored by AACCI corporate member organizations. Anderson’s and Stebbins’ project is “Worry-Free Brownies”.

The Best Student Research Award for Grain Nutrition Science was sponsored by the AACCI Nutrition Division and the Kellogg Company. Ramakrishna’s poster and oral presentations are “Improving Phenolic Bioactive-Linked Anti-Hyperglycemic Functions of Dark Germinated Barley Sprouts (Hordeum vulgare L.) Using Seed-Driven Elicitation Strategy”.
