Food science students learn how to convert food commodities into high quality food products that are safe and nutritious. Food science majors develop an understanding of the nature, properties, and characteristics of foods through courses in biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, physics, and more. Food technology courses build on this foundation and apply it to the study of processing, preservation, sanitation, storage, and marketing of foods.
