As a food scientist you will be studying the physical,chemical and microbiological properties of food and ingredients to make sure they are safe to consume and also find the best way to distribute, process, preserve, and package the food.
Food scientists research new ways to ensure food safety as well as improve the taste and nutrition of the food. Stability and maturity in raw ingredients is checked to ensure products meet required safety standards, quality, and nutrient values.They take charge of inspecting safety compliance with government regulations in regards to sanitation, waste management standards, and quality and work towards the overall improvement of food like texture, flavor, color, chemical composition, convenience and nutritional value.
Studying Physics, Chemistry and biology/ maths at the +2 level and securing a minimum score in these subjects would be a prerequisite for admission into food science courses.
Bsc food science is a 3 year undergraduate program.Admissions to these programs based on entrance exam scores and academic performance in plus two.
