These videos were part of a joint project effort with the Departments of Food Science and Technology and Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise.  It was funded, in part, with an integrated, internal competitive grant from the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station, Virginia Cooperative Extension, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech.
