Congratulations to IFTSA & MARS Product Development Competition finalists Vy Phung, Chia-Yung Su, Jeremy Chuardy, Gary Adrian and Siriyakorn Chantieng for receiving honors for their Okaranchi product in June at the 29th IFTSA & MARS Product Development Competition at the Institute of Food Technology's annual meeting in New Orleans!
The UC Davis product development team created Okaranchi, a high-fiber and environmentally-friendly cracker which incorporates soymilk byproduct, or okara, as the main ingredient. The crackers are an up-cycled product that have a subtle soybean flavor and a rosemary aroma, and can be enjoyed by themselves, or is also delicious with dips, nut butter, cheese, or wine.
This team is the first team from UC Davis to have been a finalist in this competition since 1993. Well done team!
