UK Food Science Courses

Introduction to Food Science

Be it how many fruit and vegetables to eat per day, genetically modified crops or sugar content in the latest child marketed drink, Food Science is never far from the headlines or our thoughts. Studying this degree at a UK university means you are fascinated by the key aspects of food – how it is produced, is it safe, how it reacts to natural elements and if it can combat illness and disease.

Food Science is forever adapting to changing trends in an attempt to look for new ways to make food taste better, be safer and improve cost and manufacturing. Students will study a range of modules including food composition, food safety, microbiology, product development, sustainability and physiology.
