The annual SAAFoST student product development day took place on 20 October. Students from UJ, TUT and UP got to showcase the novel and exciting food products that they developed. A panel of 15 judges from the food industry judged the products on best display, best scientific content and best commercial potential. The best overall UJ product with the best scientific content was developed by Sylvia Mnisi (right) and was a delicious low GI carrot frozen dessert. Katlego Masebe (left) with her convenient canned Bambara seeds was a close second, and her product also got the prize for best commercial potential. Bheki Simelane and his bitter leaf beer had the best display. Dr Sue de Kock was in charge of organising the day and supervising the students.
