To Bean or Natto Bean, That Is the Question 6 August 2019

To Bean or Natto Bean, That Is the Question

Soybean variety trial and hands-on workshop was a success

Natto…people love it or they hate it. Making natto is a good way to preserve soybeans, add nutritional content, create a value-added product, and produce a distinctive flavor and texture that some swear by…and others swear about. Participants at the recent natto workshop at the Pearl City Urban Garden Center were decidedly of the former camp, eagerly tasting different preparations of the sometimes-slithery fermented soybean condiment and learning how to make it themselves.

Top proposals win $100K in funding

Congratulations to all CTAHR faculty who were successful in the recent Maui County FY20 grant competition! Nine proposals were submitted, requesting a total of nearly $133,000; since only $100,000 was available, support was provided for the seven top proposals. Researchers are encouraged to try for funding next year—it’s a great way to get some important projects up and running!

More and Better Wagyu 13 June 2019

More and Better Wagyu

Kyle Caires (HNFAS) recently presented an important breakthrough stemming from his reproductive physiology research at the XXIII Brazilian Congress of Animal Reproduction held in Gramado, RS, Brazil. This project involved research trials using classic and contemporary techniques in embryology to improve embryo production in Wagyu cows.

Eating Well in Wai‘anae 29 May 2019
