Food is fundamental of all life processes and so food science and technology are as important for those responsible for providing nutritional and balanced meals in a household or for large catering establishments in hotels, hospitals , canteens etc.
Food technology is associated with the manufacture, preservation, canning and packaging of food products. It is concerned with all types of food- fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, milk, cereals, spice, tea, coffee etc. Food scientists & technologists use chemistry , microbiology , engineering and other sciences to study the principles underlying the processing and deterioration of foods, they analyze food content to determine levels of vitamins, fat , sugar and protein, discover new food sources, research ways to make processed foods safe, palatable and healthful and apply food science knowledge to determine best ways to process , package , preserve , store and distribute food.
