A team of six food science and packaging science students won third place and $2,000 in the 2013 Knowledge Award sponsored by DuPont Nutrition and Health. The objective of the Knowledge Award is to encourage the development of innovative new food and beverage products using two or more DuPont food ingredients.
E. Jeffery Rhodehamel has been named chairman of the food, nutrition and packaging sciences department in Clemson University’s College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences.
The Dairy Research Institute has recognized three Clemson University food science students with the first-place prize in the institute’s New Product Competition. The students’ winning product was an oat-infused vanilla milk called “tOATal Milk.”
Satisfy your sweet tooth and help a good cause at the same time at Clemson University’s ’55 Exchange during its Ice Cream With a Heart program. Four student-created flavors are for sale throughout the month of February, with 20 percent of the proceeds going to philanthropic organizations.
From the famous “five-second rule” and popular games such as beer pong, to faux pas such as “double dipping” and drinking out of the milk carton, professor Paul Dawson’s research on common food safety practices has sparked interest in the science behind food safety in both his students and the public.
The ’55 Exchange is not asking students what their favorite flavor is, but what flavor best represents their favorite charity.
