Innovations in Food Processing
Reaching beyond traditional food processing operations into the future will be a range of engineering and production advances destined to offer lower cost, safer and higher quality food products. Exciting new processes such as non-thermal including ultra high pressure, extended shelf life, aseptic treatment of particulates and microwave sterilization hold the promise to revolutionize food preservation. Under the guidance of Professor Aaron L. Brody, students will be exposed to an array of speakers, visuals and hands-on activities to illustrate the principles and applications of innovative food processing.
Biochemical Reactions in Foods
Biochemistry, including protein,
carbohydrate, lipid chemistry, metabolism, gene technology, is central to
understanding the safety, quality and wholesomeness of foods. These core concepts will be presented and
applications to current issues in food science will be developed, including
chemical safety of foods, allergenicity, rapid
testing methods and more. Drs. Louise
Wicker of UGA and James Knopp of
Classes starting in January, 2006. Now is the time to enroll.
