The Food Science major in the Bachelor of Science introduces you to the science behind the food we eat. It can open the door to a wide range of careers in food science.
Food innovation is driven by trends like reducing sugar, sodium and fat; using more natural flavourings and colourings, and improving the shelf-life of foods. Food scientists are critical in the production of food. They develop new food products, improve sensory attributes and nutritional content of foods, and find new ways to preserve, process, package and distribute food.
Study food science and become familiar with food chemistry, food microbiology, sensory science, food product development and food processing and technology. You learn to analyse the characteristics of food, discover new food sources, and research how to make processed foods safe and healthy.
