Food Science

Food Science

The Institute of Food Technologists defines food science as "the discipline in which the engineering, biological, and physical sciences are used to study the nature of foods, the causes of deterioration, the principles underlying food processing, and the improvement of foods for the consuming public".

This is a relatively new field and there are a variety of sub-fields that continue to evolve and develop. You may also find that food security and agricultural development linked to the food chain could be included in this area.
