Unit Code: FIS416 / FIS604

Unit Title: Food Materials

The Unit gives students the opportunity to learn about how food materials and methods used to process food sources into finished products, such as fisheries products, are made. Offered as part of the Unit, are food processing, food structures, texture, control over nutrition, and aesthetics. In these areas students are assisted to explore both small-scale development and commercially viable large-scale processes and how to bridge them. Emphasis is placed on physical approaches to controlling food properties and performance, as well as the ability to exploit and preserve chemical and biological aspects using physical techniques.
