The GNT Young Scientist Award 2017 goes to Caroline Buvé of Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. At the 31st EFFoST International Conference, which was held in Sitges, Spain, from 13th to 16th November, she stood out with her research on quantifying colour changes of pasteurized strawberry juices during storage by integrating analytical and acceptability data.

Second and third place went to Marlies Geerts, Wageningen University, the Netherlands, and Cinzia Mannozzi, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria. They impressed the jury with their work on understanding functional properties of mildly refined starch fraction of yellow pea (Geerts) and the influence of pulsed electric field and ohmic heating pre-treatment on the enzyme and antioxidant activity of recovered fruit and vegetable juices (Mannozzi). The award honours students and PhD students with extraordinary achievements in the field of food science. It is presented by the GNT Group, leading global provider of Colouring Foods, for the eighth time already and includes prize money of 1,000 euros, 600 euros and 400 euros.

“At GNT, we are constantly investing in our innovation pipeline to lead the field of Colouring Foods and develop new solutions. Therefore, it is extremely important for us to encourage young scientist to engage in research related to Colouring Foods – and support their work,” says Marcus Volkert, Application and Development Manager at GNT and member of the award committee. “All winners presented creative, pioneering ideas in their respective fields and stood out with excellently conducted research. Their studies are of high relevance for the production and application of Colouring Foods and serve as an inspiration for the constant advancement of our EXBERRY® portfolio of colour solutions.”

Poster and oral presentations by scientists from all over Europe entered this year’s edition of the GNT Young Scientist Award. They were evaluated by a committee of renowned academic and industrial representatives during EFFoST International Conference. The award has been organized since 2009 to support the scientific examination of approaches and solutions applicable to fruit and vegetable processing or colorimetric analysis.
