Food Science Schools and Information

With changes in how we eat and cook the areas of culinary arts and culinary science are now merging --- many restaurant kitchens are now looking more like a science labs. Food Scientists are now linking up more than ever with chefs to produce healthy, creative culinary experiences.

What is Food Science?

Food Science integrates and applies knowledge within the disciplines of chemistry, engineering, biology, and nutrition to preserve, process, package, and distribute foods that are healthy, affordable, desirable, and safe to eat. Food Scientists will study the chemical composition of food and food ingredients; their physical, biological and biochemical properties; the microbiology of foods; and the interaction of food constituents with each other and their environment.

Interest in food science has grown in recent years because of the increasing awareness of the vital role of food in the health. In addition as economic status of individuals and countries increase people expand their desires for broader range of foods.
