Fresno State Food Processing makes food products with the help of the students at Fresno State University. The lab employs up to a dozen students each year in special projects, while serving as a training ground for students who are developing and producing their own products. Most products processed in the laboratory are sold at the Gibson Farm Market, giving students further opportunities to determine the marketability of their products. The students are exposed to a creative, research-oriented option that includes product development, culinary sciences, food chemistry, food microbiology, sensory science, food processing and food service management. As students learn cooking and science, they gain hands-on experience in culinary arts and research. In the lab they have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment such as induction cookers, ice cream machines, dehydrators, steamers and mixers.They are eager to share their products with the local community. You may purchase their seasonal cranberry sauce, jams, and fire roasted salsa from Ooooby!
