WELCOME TO THE MUSHROOM CLUB OF GEORGIA
UPCOMING MEETINGS

February 5th, 2020

John P. Munafo

"Mushroom Flavor Chemistry- The Science Behind the Fascinating Flavor of Mushrooms"

Enhancement of both flavor and the health-promoting properties of edible mushrooms presents a substantial opportunity for improving the quality of the global diet. This talk will provide a broad overview of the newly established 'Mushroom Flavor Science' research program at the University of Tennessee, provide the fundamentals of mushroom flavor (both aroma and taste) and discuss flavor measurement techniques using modern laboratory instrumentation coupled with human sensory studies.

Dr. John P. Munafo is an Assistant Professor of Flavor Science and Natural Products Chemistry in the Department of Food Science at the University of Tennessee. His research on flavor chemistry consists of identifying and measuring key flavor molecules in foods, including edible mushrooms. His work in natural products chemistry centers on the discovery and characterization of potential health promoting molecules found in plants and fungi.

As always, try to come around 6:15 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!

Meeting are at the Intown Community Church, 2059 Lavista Road, Atlanta, 30329. We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 with a social time for snacking, identifying mushrooms, browsing guides and making friends. The social time begins at 6:15. Members bring snacks each month. A sign up list for volunteering to bring snacks will be passed around. This is a chance to learn some, connect some and get filled in on some of the club's plans for the year.

 

 

IT'S THE LAW

In 2010, fungi were incorporated into Chile's Environmental Law (No .19,300, General Bases of the Environment, 1994) such that the Ministry of Environment must ensure fungi are classified in a national inventory using scientific and IUCN Red-Listing criteria.
