“Man is What He Eats” – Lucretius
What is Food and Nutrition?
From a molecular level through to people and populations, food and nutrition experts can make a difference in our lives. They serve our community by improving our diet and health. Food science and nutrition graduates study how individual food components are digested, absorbed and utilised. With this knowledge, they improve our healthy by designing diets to manipulate these effects according to individual people’s needs. Students will also get to study the factors that influence consumer food choices, for example, how consumers respond to food marketing and their impact on health. They also study the importance of sustainable food production and how food producers, retailers and consumers respond to global food issues. Essentially, food nutritionists possess the skills and knowledge in food chemistry, production, preservation and process technology, food safety and quality management. These skills are applied in the various industries like food marketing, food manufacturing and nutraceutical industries, dietary consultancy, sports and healthcare industries.
