Research Interests

The multi-task mission of this Unit includes enhancement of flavor and shelf-life of domestic and export peanuts and peanut products by developing improved methods in production, handling, and roast processing; qualitative and quantitative determination of peanut components which contribute to nutrition and health of consumers; evaluation and use of genetic resources to improve market quality factors; and provide a safer food supply to consumers by developing accurate methods to detect and remove mycotoxin contaminated commodities from the food and feed systems and reduce the economic risk to farmers, handlers, and manufacturers. The Unit conducts research on high priority issues to assist the peanut and grain industries in producing the highest quality products possible.
