Section Description

This course is a course on the history of food preservation techniques, food quality, food safety and unit operations in the production of a food product.

Section Expectation

Generall y speaking I utilize a question and answer format in class. You are expected to be present and to contribute your personal knowledge when called on. My goal is to increase your knowledge and to allow you to apply your knowledge to the factors involved with the production and preservation of food products. The emphasis of the course will be including making the materials relevant to a dietitian, nutritionist and/or food scientist. Students are empowered to ask questions about ideas and terms with which they are not familiar.


The grading for the course is based on semester exams as well as a Final Exam. Exams may include both an in class set of questions in the form of multiple choice or True/False questions and a take home written portion.
