Welcome to the Food Science InstituteWelcome to the Food Science Institute Website. The Food Science Institute (FSI) was established in 2001 to integrate the expertise in food science across K-State. FSI facilitates the undergraduate, graduate, and online education programs and provides both research and technical assistance for the food industries. Approximately, 57 nationally and internationally recognized faculty from five colleges and 11 departments serve as teachers, mentors, researchers, and extension specialists in the following areas: food chemistry, food microbiology, food safety, veterinary medicine, cereal science, dairy science, meat science, food service, sensory analysis, food engineering, human nutrition, and product development. We look forward to assisting you in the area of food science.
Team to Compete at AACC Annual Meeting
Congratulations to the Food Science Product Development team for their upcoming participation at the 2016 American Association of Cereal Chemistry International Annual Meeting in the Product Development Division Competition with their Cheesy Pack Crackers! The team members are Lu Wang, M.S., Bingyi Li, M.S., Karolina Sanchez, Ph.D., and Gagan Gandhi, M.S., all four are food science graduate students. The team advisors are Drs. Karen Schmidt and Jayendra Amamcharla. The AACCI Annual Meeting will be held in Savannah, GA from October 23-26. Congratulations! Good luck!
We are excited to offer Kansas State students interested in food, health and/or agriculture-related careers the chance to share an experiential learning opportunity alongside dairy farmers and industry professionals. Throughout the event, students will come to better understand the science behind how dairy products get from the farm to the plate. Together, science, technology and innovation are helping the dairy industry meet consumer needs for safe, nutritious, fresh, convenient and sustainable foods – today and into the future.
When: October 5, 2016
The K-State chapter of Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society invites students in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, chemical engineering, physics, food science, or other related departments to participate in the inaugural K-State American Chemical Society Undergraduate Research Forum from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, in the Chemistry/Biochemistry Building.
