Introduction to Food Science University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

In this course, students will learn about food science based on physical, chemical, biochemical, biological, and engineering approach, from the fundamental level to cutting-edge applied science and technology. After a general overview of the course and an introduction to the current status of food science, the lecture will be on Food Functionality. "Functional food" is a food given an additional function, related to health-promotion or disease prevention. Food functionality is so important in order to produce value added products.
