Research Projects

  1. As Health Food Manager with MASAN Consumer Corp. Ltd., HCMC, Vietnam, she has led and Coordinated Development of Calcium-Fortified Breakfast Cereals besides developing the work plan for Iron-Fortification of Fish Sauce and Soy Sauce.

  2. As Institute Research Fellow at NDRI, Karnal, India, she has Standardized Dietary Fiber Formulations using Response Surface Methodology and further Optimized the Process for their incorporation into Yoghurt & Kheer. She has also undertaken Clinical Trials/Bioassaying on rats to determine True Protein Digestibility and Calcium Bioavailability.

  3. As a Graduate Research cum Teaching Assistant at GBPUAT, Pantnagar, India, she has analyzed the effect of Microbial Rennet on the Physiochemical, Microbiological and Sensory attributes of Low fat Cheese/cheese-spread developed using accelerated ripening process. She had also successfully Optimized the process for Whey based Tomato Soup towards the utilization of Whey, a byproduct of Cheese/Paneer Industry.
