About

Every food item you buy goes through intensive processes to ensure it will be safe for people to eat. The study of food science explores how to delay food from decaying while keeping food as nutritious as it is when harvested, all while ensuring an accessible and abundant food supply for consumers. It is the study of the biological, chemical, and physical make up of food. The field is broken down into areas of expertise, ranging from quality assurance, food law, packaging, processing, and much more! Today, we are able to enjoy a wide range of food due to years of research and practice from everyone in this field.
