Ph. D., Assistant Professor Department of Agriculture and Biological Engineering, Purdue University
What Will Attendees Learn?
- Learn a fundamental understanding of cereal foods in batter and dough systems
- Acquire knowledge about cereal foods structure formation and its impact on texture
- Gain a basic understanding of fundamental and empirical rheometry of cereal foods
Cereal foods are the major ingredients of both human and animal food. Understanding their rheology helps food technologists to develop products that are of a desired texture by consumers. Food technologists who work in product development, quality control or who supply ingredients will benefit from attending this three-day course. Using an equal mix of classroom and hands-on lab sessions, experts from the field will teach the fundamental principles in cereal foods rheology and how it influences texture. Attendees will learn how ingredients and processing technologies affect food systems structures, and how they in turn affect texture. Attendees will also have hands on experience in laboratories on fundamental and empirical rheological methods on evaluating cereal foods.
