Cereal Science doctoral student Minwei Xu was awarded a Lipid Oxidation and Quality (LOQ) Division Student Travel Grant to attend the 2018 American Oil Chemists’ Society (AOCS) Annual Meeting and Expo in Minneapolis, Minnesota in May. He will be recognized during the LOQ Division luncheon at the annual meeting.

In addition, Xu has been invited to present a talk during the meeting. He will present The Antioxidative Activity of Soluble Bound Phenolic Compounds Fractions Extracted from Germinated Chickpea in Oil-in-Water Emulsions.

Xu’s home country is China. His graduate research title is Improvement of the Attributes and Identification of Antioxidants from Pulse Seeds through Germination. He is advised by Bingcan Chen, assistant professor in food and cereal chemistry.

The AOCS “promotes the science and technology of lipids in the fats and oils.” Featuring an extensive technical program and more than 1400 attendees, the AOCS Annual Meeting and Expo is “recognized as a premier international science and business forum on fats, oils, surfactants, lipids and related materials.” (www.aocs.org)
