Portrait of Kevin E Mis Solval

Description of Research Interests

Research focuses on (1) designing novel food ingredients from food industry by-products; (2) developing computer simulation models as an engineering tool for optimizing food processing conditions in spray drying and cryogenic freezing of foods and (3) studying the effect of particle size and BET surface area of dried food powders on nutrient retention and bioavailability of bioactives.
