World Food Authority to Discuss New Process That Will Revolutionize Food Industry
A world authority on sweeteners, rice processing, and the extraction and metabolism of inulin will visit Nebraska Wesleyan University on Thursday, March 31 to discuss a new process that she says will revolutionize the food industry.
Dr. Cheryl Mitchell is the president, owner and senior research chemist for Creative Research Management. Her products include the Rice Dream product, which is the largest-selling rice beverage in the United States.
In her upcoming lecture, “‘Milking’ Primary Food Sources,” Mitchell will discuss a new process development in food technology involving “milking” the grain, which has introduced a plethora of new whole grain ingredients that have application in all food categories from pasta to confectionary. Mitchell says using these new milked whole grain ingredients means refined ingredients can now be replaced with high nutrient density whole grain and seed ingredients.
Mitchell has spent the last 30 years working in the food industry, creating wholesome ingredients through unique food processing methods that retain and maximize their natural beneficial components of foods.
Mitchell’s lecture is part of Nebraska Wesleyan’s annual Fetzer Science Lecture. Her free talk begins at 1 p.m. in Olin B Lecture Hall, located one block east of 50th Street and St. Paul Ave.
