2018 Innovator of the Year — DryCard™

10/29/2018; 2 minutes

The DryCard™ is an inexpensive device developed by UC Davis researchers, Michael Reid and Jim Thompson, for determining if dried food is dry enough to prevent mold growth during storage. Moldy food can have a bad taste and may be contaminated with harmful toxins. So far, the Horticulture Innovation Lab has offered samples of the DryCard™ in multiple languages to researchers who can try the tool out in real-world situations. (#34107)
