'Chemistry and Flavor of Hispanic Foods' one-day symposium, March 15

SAN DIEGO, March 15 Mat, queso blanco and frijoles: these are just a few examples of the booming growth of Hispanic cuisine, which is becoming increasingly commonplace in restaurants and grocery stores throughout the country. The trend is fueled by this country's fast-growing Hispanic population and its rich and diverse culinary heritage. While consumers have enjoyed treats such as tortilla chips and margaritas for many years, scientists are now beginning to discover that Hispanic foods have unique chemistries that offer unexpected health benefits, novel flavors, textures and cooking properties. More than a dozen research papers will be presented during the one-day symposium, "Chemistry and Flavor of Hispanic Foods," on Tuesday, March 15, at the 229th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. The symposium begins at 8:20 a.m. at the Horton Grand, Regal C. Selected highlights include:

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture have recently conducted the first comprehensive chemical analysis of Hispanic-style cheeses, a development which could lead to improved quality and marketability of these cheeses as they make their way into mainstream cuisine.
