Prof. HN Mishra has made a remarkable contribution in the growth of knowledge and research in the field of food science & technology. His responsibilities at IIT include assisting in the planning, organization and implementation of on-going programmes of applied food research and product development. Prof. Mishra also has a vast experience in the administration and management of industrial scale collaborative research projects ranging from new process, product development and also creation of pilot scale facilities. Prof. Mishra focuses on developing, enhancing and commercializing food technologies by collaborating with industry to promote product diversification and enhancement, increase market growth and aid competitiveness.
Prof. Mishra has a vast experience of working on rice fortification, RTC/RTE/RTD fortified foods & beverage technology, functional foods & nutraceuticals processing, twin screw extrusion technology, high pressure processing, supercritical fluid extraction, microencapsulation, CAS/MAP and edible coating for enhancement of shelf life of high value perishable foods . He has successfully developed process technology for development of gluten free rice based bread and pasta. His expertise in extraction techniques is obvious from the optimization of solvent and SCFE extraction of biochemical (β-carotene, phycocyanin) from fresh spirulina biomass, curcuminoid from curcumin and ergothreonine from mushroom. A patent application has also been a filed for gluten free rice based bread. He has been leading research in the removal of cholesterol using advanced state of art super critical fluid extraction process. Additionally he has also development rice and dal analog using twin screw Prof. Mishra has received numerous awards for his contributions to food science and technologies some of which are listed above.
