I’m David Moseley. I was recently awarded a fellowship from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board. This is an exciting opportunity because it allows me to pursue my graduate studies and this is going to benefit the state of Arkansas because we were able to start a new industry here in Arkansas. [David Moseley standing in an edamame field.]

Where Arkansas is used to growing soybeans for oil and feed, but now we can look at food grade products and all the things that go into the edamame or tofu, the nutrients, the vital chemicals and the taste and texture, seed size. There’s many things we can look at that’s going to be very beneficial, very profitable for Arkansas farmers.  [Video shows a combine harvesting the edamame field, edamame plants with pods, and a person holding a handful of edamame pods. Slide - Benefits of Edamame - low in calories, high in fiber, contains vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, iron, folate, thiamine, potassium, and many other minerals.]

For example one of our recent research endeavors is canning edamame, in which we put fresh edamame in a can to preserve it and a couple of weeks later, we are going to go back and test for sensory items like texture, color and in the future, taste and we can compare that to the frozen product which is currently on the market. [Video shows researcher Pengyin Chen showing a can of edamame and discussing his research with producers and researchers at a field day.]
