IFST Young Scientists of the Year 2019

Congratulations to Alice Nield (University of Reading) and Saravjeet Bajwa (Manchester Metropolitan University) who won the national final of the IFST Young Scientist Competition in the undergraduate and postgraduate categories respectively.

Alice impressed the judges with her presentation entitled ‘Production of GOS from aerobic probiotic’. Saravjeet talked about antimicrobial properties of potential bioactive compounds of Indian spices and herbs. Both articles are reproduced at the end of IFST News.

IFST Young Scientist Competition provides undergraduate and postgraduate students based in the UK with a chance to present a recently completed project to their peers and a panel of food professionals. In addition to regional rounds in Scotland, Northern Ireland, North of England and South of England, this year we hosted a national final on 18 June in London.

Alongside the competition, we had the honour of having Dr Hazel Gowland, Expert in Food Allergy Risk, Visiting Fellow – University of Southampton, as our keynote speaker. She delivered a talk entitled ‘Eat, snog or avoid – what to do about food allergy’.

Thank you to all students who took part and special thanks to all academics who supported and universities who hosted our competition over the past few months.
