Course Description

This course will teach you how nutrition and food science can help us understand and study the amazing world of food.

Learn about the food supply chain, and how food processing can make your food healthier.

We'll discuss how new technologies in food production are changing the way we produce food and how new products are created.

We will also examine how nutrition needs differ in different countries, and how policies are created to support nutrition.

Through case studies you will learn about the importance of macro and micronutrients, and what happens to food while it is in your body.
