CHAPTER ONE - (Note: won’t be on the final exam, but good to know)
Food science is concerned with all quality and safety aspects of food before a person
consumes them, while nutrition is related to how the body uses foods after we eat them
to promote and maintain health.
The difference between science and food technology in general is that technology is
what people can make happen through today’s technology expertise whereas an
understanding of the science and consequences of those technologies (example, long
term effects on people and the environment) may belong to the future.
Foods are derived from living organisms, either animal or plant in origin.
