About the Institute:

Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology (IIFPT) is a renowned Institution in educational and research in the field of food processing, functioning under the Ministry of
Food Processing Industries (MoFPI), Government of India. The institute has its origin way back in 1967 when it was started as a R&D laboratory in the Modern Rice Mill complex
of Thanjavur Co-operative Marketing Federation (TCMF) at Tiruvarur. Over a period of 35 years, the institute has evolved as a National Level Institute with the name of Indian Institute Crop Processing Technology (IICPT). Recently during 2017, from the institute rechristened as the Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology (IIFPT).

Considering the vital importance of post harvest processing and value addition in India, the institute caters the needs of the country by developing skilled/technical manpower for achieving the targets like sustained food security for all, safe food supply at grass root levels, reduced food losses and economic prosperity of farmers. Having more than 5 decades of research and development experience and one decade of academic experiences in the field of food processing, the institute delivered more than 500 young professional to the core field and they are proving their phenomenal prudence in food processing domain both in India and aboard. IIFPT is not mere graduating the students, it creates doyens in food processing. IIFPT is a road to excellence, board into that for prosperous, promising and peaceful future

Unit Operation Laboratory

 

FOOD MICROBIOLOGY LABORATORY

Microbes play major roles in our foods, some plays a good role and some a bad role.  Bad microbes must be controlled to save the food from spoilage and good microbes must be provided with conducing growing conditions.  Current Research Focuses include production of pigments from microbial origin, preparation and preservation of millet based Porridges for longer shelf life, beverage preservation, utilization of tapioca effluent for spirulina production, standardization of ethnic fermented food and beverages by rationalization of indigenous knowledge, probiotic food formulation using n dairy substrates and tannase enzyme production from agro wastes.

 

FOOD MICROBIOLOGY LAB

DEPARTMENT OF FOOD SAFETY AND QUALITY TESTING
