Supplying the world population with safe, nutritious, appetizing, and economical food is the ultimate goal of Food Science. Achieving this goal requires the processing, packaging, distribution, and evaluation of food. It involves many disciplines and uses the principles of biology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, physics, and engineering to solve practical problems related to the food industry. Food scientists were among the first to work with biotechnology. Food scientists work with food from the time it leaves the farm until the storage of the final product including all operations from processing, preparation, and distribution. Also, they determine the factors that affect safety, nutritive value, and acceptability of food.

Food Production & Services
This course examines food preparation methods and service techniques in quantity and quality food production. It shows how to read and evaluate menus, recipe conversion, and costing. It considers different production schemes, food safety, food flow and waste, and the relationship between back-of-the-house and front-of-the-house activities.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Alberto Gavalda

Food Chemistry
This course explains the relationship between food composition and properties as well as the physico-chemical changes food undergoes during processing, storage, and consumption. It examines the physical and chemical methods fused to analyze food, and uses common food to highlight the complex relationship between the physical and chemical properties of food.
