Food Science


This course covers the chemical and physical changes in foods that occur with cooking, handling, and processing. Emphasis is placed on the practical application of heat transfer and its effect on color/flavor/texture; emulsification, protein coagulation, leavening agents, viscosity, and gel formation. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of these principles covered as they apply to food preparation in an experimental setting.
