Dr. Charles A. Sims
The quality of fruits and vegetables has always been very important to consumers, but with increased competition, quality has become even more important to consumers. Dr. Sims’ recent research has focused on the quality characteristics of fruits and vegetables, including processed products and juices. The main area of emphasis has been on factors that influence the sensory characteristics and consumer acceptability of these products. This research involves a lot of joint research projects with other faculty in IFAS and with private food companies and growers.
