Mobiliti Pelajar : International Summer Course, Universitas Bakrie, Indonesia

Pelajar Teknologi Makanan UTHM Timba Pengalaman di International Summer Course, Universitas Bakrie, Indonesia

7-17 Ogos 2023: 10 orang pelajar Ijazah Sarjana Muda Sains (Teknologi Makanan) dengan kepujian, Fakulti Sains Gunaan dan Teknologi, UTHM telah menyertai program International Summer Camp di Universitas Bakrie, Jakarta Indonesia selama 11 hari. Program merupakan aktiviti untuk MoU UTHM-Universitas Bakrie di bawah seliaan Prof. Madya ChM. Dr. Norhayati Muhammad bagi pihak UTHM dan Dr. Kurnia Ramadhan bagi pihak Universitas Bakrie.

Program memberi pendedahan pada pelajar berkaitan analisis sensori makanan. Selain itu, analisis data menggunakan perisian seperti Microsoft Excel, XLSTAT, SPSS dan RStudio juga dikongsikan oleh Fasilitator dari Universitas Bakrie, selain pendedahan pada tren dan perkembangan terkini tentang analisis penyelidikan makanan dan pembangunan produk makan dalam industri. Para pelajar juga menjalani peperiksaan di akhir kursus dan dibawa melawat Indofood Fortuna Makmur yang merupakan industri makanan terkenal di Banten, yang merupakan pengeluar mi segera Indomie. Tahniah untuk para pelajar dan FAST, semoga program seumpama ini dapat diteruskan lagi demi kemenjadian pelajar untuk meneroka pengalaman berada di luar Malaysia.

Particle Size Analyzer Training

The training for Particle Size Analyzer had been conducted for one day at Makmal Instrumentasi Makanan. The training had been given by Mr. Jonathan Wong Eu Hann from DKSH Technology Sdn Bhd. The training session covers the basic of particle sizing, principle of laser diffraction and obtaining and also understanding size distribution. The courses also cover on the method screening specifically wet measurements. For practical session, the students and staffs had been introduced to hardware and software of the instrument, sample measurement and data interpretation.

Particle size analyser used to analyse the size distribution of particles in given sample. The sample can be in form of solid materials, suspensions, emulsions and even aerosols. There are many methods developed to measure particle size. Some methods can be used for wide range of sample but some methods are only applicable to specific samples. Therefore, it is important to choose the right method to get the desirable results.

Particle size analysis is a very important test and is used for quality control in many different industries including food and beverages industries. Many food products exist in particulate form ranging from powders to emulsions, suspensions and pellets. The size distribution of the particulates can affect the taste, appearance, stability, processability, and functionality of the final product. For example, particle size distribution affects the sensory properties of ice creams, chocolates and ketchup, while the zeta potential of particles helps determine the shelf life of baby food and other liquid and “soft solid” products. Particle sizing for powders, emulsions and suspensions used in foods and beverages can be analyzed using dynamic light scattering, laser diffraction or the Coulter Principle, and zeta potential can be determined by electrophoretic light scattering. The storage and stability of food are also strongly dependent on particle size. While powdered food items can undergo caking, emulsions (e.g. milk) can have stability issues if the size of lipid droplets is not tightly controlled. Particle size also strongly affects the organoleptic properties of food items. Texture and mouthfeel play pivotal roles in the acceptability of food products. As the human tongue is capable of detecting particles of just a few microns in size, tweaking the size of particles can have a big impact on product acceptance.

The Mastersizer 3000E is highly regarded as the premier laser diffraction particle size analysis instrument on the market for design, performance and software user experience. It uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analysed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.

Training of Alpha MOS Electric Nose

 A training of Alpha MOS electronic nose had been conducted for two days at Makmal Instrumentasi Makanan. The training sessions covers the application development guide which includes the objective and scope of work of the application as well as sample preparation and how to operate the instrument. The participants also had been educated about theory on Heracles e-nose which is the working principle for the instrument.

The electronic nose is a device that use to detect odour more effectively than the human sense of smell. It is an intelligent sensing device that uses an array of gas sensors which are overlapping selectively along with a pattern reorganization component. These days, this instrument have provided external benefits to many industries such as agriculture, biomedical, cosmetics, environmental, food, water and other various research fields. Some of the advantage of this device, it can detect the hazardous or poisonous gas which is not possible to human sniffers. In addition, there is detection limits for human nose for different gases.

At the end of the course, participants were able to use the instrument as well as learnt how to perform basic maintenance of the instrument.
