Global News: U of M lab cooking up healthy snacks

As Global News and CJOB report, students from 10 different countries have come to Canada this summer to work on different projects. One project, in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, involves using leftover bread crumbs and combining them with yellow peas to make a healthy version of Chee-tos.

Assistant professor Filiz Koksel says Manitoba has the perfect ingredients for a thriving food sciences industry.

Enrollment into the U of M’s Agricultural and Food Sciences department has grown from 262 students in 2009 to 686 students in 2017.
