Loughry National Diploma Students Go Grain Crazy at the Balmoral Show

Date published: 16 May 2017

Loughry Campus National Diploma Food Technology students have been busy helping to promote the journey of wheat and oilseeds in the food pavilion at the Balmoral Show. They worked alongside the Ulster Farmers Union, the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board and the Krazi Baker, to educate and inform primary school children about wheat and oilseed and how they are used to make foods. Students also demonstrated how flour is produced from wheat grain and showed the process of extracting oil from seeds.

Loughry Students Ryan Mulholland (Toomebridge), Rebecca Cromie (Banbridge), Amy Semple (Omagh), Rachel McIlveen (Killinchy), and Jack Graham (Ballymoney).

The students assisted the many local school children who were attracted to the stand and who got “hands-on” experience with the Krazi Baker learning how to make their own soda bread.
