  5. Production of Broccoli Seed with Added Chemoprotective Value During a Shortened Growing Season

    SBC: Caudill Seed Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evidence indicates that the consumption of cole crop vegetables, like broccoli, leads to a reduced risk of certain cancers in humans. Broccoli seed and seedling sprouts contain high levels of the compounds glucoraphanin and its by-product sulforaphane, which is known to provide a protective effect against certain carcinogens and is the likely agent reducing the human risk of cancer. These findings ...

  6. Milk Pasteurization and Homogenization by Acoustic Cavitation at Small Rural Dairy Farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Milk prices have steadily increased over the past two decades; however, the price paid to farmers has remained around $1.00 per gallon over the last two decades. This has resulted in many small dairy farmers getting out of the business. The purpose of this project is to design a system that a small dairy farmer can use to process milk so that he can send it directly to the consumer and avoid the a ...
