Ludhiana, December 5, 2023: Dr. Pranav K. Singh, Associate Professor, College of Dairy Science & Technology, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary & Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana, bagged the award for best paper presentation at 11th International Conference on Fermented Foods, Health Status and Social Well-being.
The conference was jointly organized by the North Eastern Hill University, Shillong, in association with the Swedish South Asian Network on Fermented Foods. It was attended by many eminent scientists from India, Japan, Thailand, and Sweden besides the industry personnel.
Dr. Singh presented his paper on ‘Nanobubbles – A Promising Technology for their Application in Fermented Dairy Foods’. Elaborating on the key research findings, he said that nanobubble technology can be employed to hasten or slow down the fermentation time in an industrial environment besides improving the quality attributes of fermented dairy foods like dahi, yoghurt, etc.
Dr. R.S. Sethi, Dean College of Dairy Science & Technology, congratulated Dr. Pranav K. Singh and his team members Dr S.K.
