The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) is proud to announce its 2013 Fellows. This is a unique professional distinction given to individuals with outstanding and extraordinary qualifications and experience for their contributions to the food science and technology field.
Witoon Prinyawiwatkul, Professor at Louisiana State University, was honored for his dedicated research, teaching and service work in value-added product development and sensory science.
Dr. Prinyawiwatkul has 121 refereed publications, one book, 242 professional, scientific presentations (nationally and internationally), and three symposia. His most significant research contributions include development of value-added functional ingredients from seafood, aquaculture byproducts, and wastes and their applications in foods. Another focus is the use of sensory science methods as a tool for developing new food products. He uses multivariate statistical analyses to assist in the interpretation of complex sensory data and consumer responses. He has also served as an Associate Editor for Journal of Food Science and a Chair for several important events for IFT.
