., Holsinger received a B.S. in chemistry from the College of William & Mary in 1958 and a Ph.D. in food science and nutrition from Ohio State University in 1980. She began her research career as an analytical chemist with USDA's Agricultural Research Service Dairy Products Laboratory in Washington, D.C. Then, in 1974, she transferred to USDA's Eastern Regional Research Center in Wyndmoor, Pa., where she led a program on the chemistry and technology of milk and dairy foods until her retirement in 1999. Holsinger developed a whey-soy drink mix that was shelf-stable enough to serve as a milk replacement in international food donation programs.
