The Important Roles of Salt Substitutes in Food Products

  • Dr Tan Hui Ling

Sodium chloride (NaCl) has a significant role in food products' texture, shelf-life, and flavour. The increasing consumption of food products with high amount of NaCl leads to life-threatening pathologies. Salt reduction was one of the most cost-effective strategies. Approaches that are taken include NaCl reduction based on the sensory acceptability of foods, NaCl replacement with low-sodium blends, and usage of flavour enhancers. The usage of cross-linking agents, hydrocolloids, and NaCl coating are innovations that help to reduce NaCl and maintain the qualities of food products.

Research Grants to Design Swarm-Intelligence Algorithms

  • Dr Muhammed Basheer Jasser

Smart cities aim at enhancing the living standards of their citizens by making use of advanced technologies to innovate various sectors. The optimisation algorithms are widely used in applications relating to smart cities (e.g. routing and estimation). Optimised swarm-intelligence algorithms such as optimised dragonfly and enhanced swap-sequence-based particle swarm optimisation algorithms were designed and employed as solutions for routing problems and channel estimation in real-world systems in smart cities such as delivery management systems and optical spatial multiplexing systems.
