FOOD SCIENCE AND FOOD SKILLS
Credit points: 15
In this subject you will develop detailed knowledge of how scientific manipulations of food impact on individual food components. You will critically examine the processes involved in producing foods for human consumption from raw ingredients, highlighting food production and processing techniques that bring about changes to the biological, chemical, physical and nutritional state of the food. Through the development of a food product suitable for sale you will apply your knowledge of food safety, food production on a medium-large scale, sensory analysis, food labelling law, the development of standard costed recipes and nutritional analysis of recipes. You will translate food science for consumers through development of a food label with supporting marketing and publicity materials.
