Pecipta 2019 - Silver Award Winners !!!

International Conference and Exposition on Inventions by Institutions of Higher Learning (PECIPTA) is a biannual programme organised by Ministry of Education Malaysia together with the selected universities since 2001. The aim of this event is to showcase the creations and innovative products and services from the local and international institutions of higher education as well as government agencies and research institutes.

PECIPTA creates networking and collaboration opportunities for participants to further develop their products and technologies and then might contribute to the commercialization and/or utilization of their products to/by community and industries.

For this year, PECIPTA was held in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) from 21st to 23rd September 2019. The researcher’s team from PPSK which includes Dr. Nik Norliza Nik Hassan, Dr. Tengku Alina Tengku Ismail, Tai Yen Yee and Mohd Kamarul Zaman Ibrahim, led by the principal investigator, Professor Dr. Wan Rosli Wan Ishak has won a silver medal for their invention entitled “MyNypa Sugar: Diabetic Friendly Natural Sugar from Nypa fruticans Sap”.

MyNypa sugar is a novel alternative natural sugar obtained by processing the N. fruticans sap by tapping the growing parts of the nipa palm. This innovative product is suitable to be incorporated into processed foods in developing high dietary fiber and causing a lower rise in blood glucose responses (low glycaemic index, GI). The product exhibited by them had successfully attracted the attention of the public and even praises from the judges in this exhibition which confirms the novelty and uniqueness of this product.

We are very grateful for this achievement and hope this achievement will spur our team and PPSK for greater success.
