"Prof. McClements shares the same ethos of Vertosa: curious, fun and educational," said Dr. Harold Han, Founder and Chief Science Officer of Vertosa.
A Distinguished Professor at the Department of Food Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Prof. McClements is the world's foremost scholar on food and agriculture science. He holds 12 patents, has published more than 1,100 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and is the most highly cited researcher in food and agriculture with more than 100,000 citations. Currently, over 70% of the food and beverage emulsion literature published worldwide is linked to his research.
