Dr. Surangna Jain has just completed her postdoctoral research from Mahidol University, Thailand. Her research mainly focused on the utilisation of modified rice starches for the formation of stable oil-in-water emulsions that were later used to develop different delivery systems for the encapsulation of lycopene. The in-vitro digestion behaviour of the different delivery systems were studied to ensure that controlled release of lycopene took place.
Dr. Surangna Jain gained her PhD (2016) under the supervision of Professor Anil Kumar Anal, who is the Head of Department of Food, Agriculture and Bioresources at Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. Dr Jain’s research focused on developing green technology based methods for isolation of bioactive peptides from the eggshell membrane, a major food processing waste and their further applications.
