June 20, 2011 - PRLog -- At the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo, Pui Yeu (Rei) Phoon was awarded for winning D.D. Williamson’s Beverage Coloring Competition for Students. Ted Nixon, Chairman and CEO, presented the trophy on Monday, June 13th in a ceremony, after which she answered questions about her novel color application and poster. Ms. Phoon received an expense paid trip to the IFT Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Ms. Phoon is a graduate student in Food Science at Purdue University. Her winning entry was a citrus-flavored beverage fortified with beta-carotene, a bioactive lipid antioxidant that contributes both Vitamin A and coloring. The system used to deliver the beta-carotene is the novelty of the beverage.

During the ceremony on Monday, Ms. Phoon acknowledged and thanked her Purdue advisors, Professors San Martin and Narsimhan, for inspiring her to enter the student competition. Phil Nelson, Ph.D. -- Professor Emeritus of Food Science, Purdue University Alumnus and World Food Prize Laureate -- was among the attendees offering congratulations.
