This course introduces you to the principles of food science and will develop your critical thinking and application skills. You will learn about the chemical, physical and biological properties of food, and how these relate to food composition and sensory characteristics. Food processing, preparation and preservation will also be explored, focussing on techniques and the subsequent impact on food properties and nutrient content. This course will also introduce you using food composition databases for recipe analysis. The application of Australian food law will be a key theme throughout this course. Workshops focus on the practical application of theory and opportunities to expose students to a range of alternative, novel and culturally diverse foods.
