Noni Specialist to Visit NMC and Host Workshop (September 21, 2010)

The Northern Marianas College Cooperative Research, Extension and Education Service’s (NMC-CREES) program in collaboration with University of Guam Food Scientist Dr. Jian Yang will be hosting a workshop on processing and storing noni juice for home use.

Yang will visit the island of Saipan on September 29-30, 2010 to learn more about the NMC-CREES Food Science program, and to teach the “Making Noni at Home” workshop.

The workshop, which requires no registration or participation fee, will be held on September 29, 2010 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm in Room D-1 at the NMC As Terlaje campus.

During the visit to the NMC, food scientist Dr. Jang Ho Kim plans to meet with Yang to discuss the possible development of a viable noni industry in the CNMI.

The noni plant is a small evergreen tree that produces a fruit prized for its medicinal properties. The noni fruit has been used to improve and enhance health for thousands of years by people in various parts of Southeast Asia and Polynesia.

“The NMC-CREES’ Food Science program has already been helping local farmers and producers with noni value-added processing,” said Kim. “With the workshop, we hope that more people in the community will become interested in producing and processing noni juice.”

“In addition to juice, the noni fruit has been used to make other products, such as wine and tea,” added Kim.

To register for the workshop, contact Dr. Jang Ho Kim at the NMC-CREES Food Science program at 234-5498 ext. 1715 or email [email protected].
