About Us

“Everything in food is science. The only subjective part is when you eat it.” ~Alton Brown “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ~Hippocrates Food Science is the study of the physical, biological, and chemical makeup of food; and the concepts underlying food processing. Food technology is the application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing, packaging, distribution, and usage of safe food. The ultimate objective of food science is to understand the principles of food processing and to improve the food quality for the general public. Whatever food item (especially packaged ones) you come across in the supermarket (or retail store), had some contributions from a food scientist, food technologist or food engineer. Food Science, Food Technology & Food Engineering Though Food Science, Food Engineering and Food Technology overlap each other, there are few subtle differences. So the below illustrations might be beneficial to understand the difference between these three: Food Technology:Fire can be used to cook food. Food Science:Burning wood produces heat, water, and carbon dioxide. Heat denatures proteins in food. Food Engineering:Building a fireplace and chimney makes it easier to cook with fire without filling the room with smoke.
