Arcanum MVCTC FFA members recently competed in the District 5 Food Science Contest hosted at New Knoxville High School.

During the contest, the team members were asked to complete a product development scenario in which they calculated the nutritional facts for a new food product and designed a new package.

Also, they completed an aroma identification section, responded to customer inquiry scenarios, identified sanitation errors in the food industry and common equipment used in a food production facility, and completed a taste sensory test and flavor identification.

Team members were Payten Parks, Katelynne Michael, Emilie Fout, Mackenzie Byrne, Mahayla Locke, Jordan Nottingham, and Kamryn Beisner.
